Kevin recently received a postcard from a local jeweler advertising that they will buy our unwanted gold. Usually most bulk mail advertisements go right into the recycling bin, but with me not working I thought this might be another way of getting extra cash while weeding out the things we no longer use or need (I've been successfully selling baby things on Craigslist and clearing out!). We both dug around in some boxes in storage, found a few pieces of gold jewelry we knew we wouldn't ever wear that had zero sentimental value and headed to the jewelry store. Ten minutes later we had $400+ in our hands! Wooo-hooo!
