Wallets are certainly tight in our current economy, and when unexpected expenses come up, you may find yourself desperately scrounging for a way out.
One of the most surefire ways to make a quick buck is by selling off some of your prized possessions. It may not sound like a particularly thrilling prospect, but sometimes sacrifices have to be made. However, before you go hocking your television, you may want to consider parting with some jewelry or going through an old coin collection. Jewelry isn’t exactly a necessity, and you may find that you’re sitting on a great deal of pieces you don’t even wear anymore. If they are made of real gold and fine metals, you’ll be able to exchange them for a fair price with specialty merchants that cater specifically to jewelry and similar merchandise. If you live in Texas, you can find a trustworthy Houston gold buyer at HNEX.com. Indeed, there are a great many places that will buy back your unwanted jewelry and coins.
Parting with a coin collection may be difficult, especially if you’ve been collecting for quite some time. However, you may be surprised at what your items can net you, so it won’t hurt to get a quote and you can always say no to the deal. You won’t be able to take your collections with you when you’re gone, so you may as well reap the most out of them and use them in a practical way while you can. There’s no time like the present.
I thought I have already gotten over buying or acquiring stuff that would end up at the back of my closet or in a storage box under the bed. I am looking at the number of various bags, from designer to mid-range to recyclable to the custom tote bags. I still have plenty and I already sold and donated quite a number. That only means, I still have a lot stashed somewhere.
Bags and clothes are not the only things that are gathering dust in my closet and shelves. There are books and DVDs, all original. I’m not sure whether I’ll donate the books or sell them. My daughter insists to sell them so we can make money out of them. I am beginning to lean on that suggestion. We could use the money as savings for her education. It won’t be substantial but the proceeds will surely be enough to cover at least a month’s worth of grocery. That’s for sure.
Another stuff I want to get rid of are the winter clothes. We have plenty! Dubai is not even a cold place and when we have winter here, it’s mostly short-lived. However, we do use them when we travel to colder parts of the world. So, this one is a bit tricky. I might hold the thought.
There are still toys left in our closet which my daughter ceased to play. We sent a box-full of toys few years ago and I couldn’t believe my eyes how many more we have left.
I wonder if all these seldom used items will be disposed of properly. I am starting to make an inventory and will probably post some to our community online market to be sold. I just hope people won’t go stingy on me and haggle for a lesser price.
