Yes, I know – this sounds simple and it is. The problem is that after a year or so of selling your stuff, you need to do it again. With the recent drop of the price of gold I decided to look again around my house to see if there was any gold or silver that I had missed last year when I was trying to find money. The few items I found were worth over $1,000 for my scrap gold. Seriously, it was not that much jewelry, actually thought it would be worth about $200 – $300, not $1,000! We also when through other items in our home and found children’s clothes, toys, furniture and hobby supplies to sell that brought in another $500. Gold Selling Tip: I do have a warning, be sure to get quotes from 2-3 stores before selling your gold. I received two lower offers before settling on the last offer I received. The lowest offer was $60 less than what I accepted.
