i'm aware that i haven't been in quite so cheerful a mood as usual lately, and if you have been keeping up with me on twitter, i've let on about the fact that work is a little bit crazy at the moment..it's no secret that, given the current economy, and the fact that things have been rather uncertain at work recently with 50% pay cuts and an uncertain future for the business, i have had to be thinking hard about other ways in which to make a little extra cash, so that i can make sure that i can still pay all my bills and expenses, until i know what will be happening..
i seem to have exhausted a lot of the more simple things..yes, i have been clearing out my wardrobe (not that i don't do that on an almost constant basis) and either ebaying, giving away, or adding my no-longer-wanted items to my blog sale page..
after searching for some inspiration, i came across something which i have always dismissed in the past..like everyone, i've read a lot in the media about different cash for gold companies, and have always thought that i probably don't have anything worth selling..but having a look at this site, even broken jewellery will do, and it needn't even be hallmarked..so having had a route through some of my broken and tangled bits - i'm sure everyone has a box like that of bits of old jewellery which you 'may do something with one day' - and have picked out a few pieces which i don't suppose i'll miss, and which i think will be ok to send..i'm planning on raiding my mum's broken jewllery box as well, as,really, what use is one earring without it's pair, lost somewhere between birmingham airport and alicante, in september 2002?!
has anyone else tried this using any of the better known companies? and do you have any advice to share about them?
