In Canada and the States, there are a lot of adverts on the tv for selling your old broken gold jewelery for cash. I have watched these with interest for a while now; then on another site I go on there was a thread all about this and how a member had done this with great results. Infact she had taken hers to a jewelery store in Canada and they had offered say $200 and when she sent it to this company in New York she got $400.
So I decided to clean out my jewelery box and see what I had laying around and here is what I found. The two larger chains I had, had been repaired before and they were just not worth while repairing again. The two smaller chains were just cheapies and not worth repairing.
I got a call from the company on January 11th and they told me it was worth just over $300 USD and was I happy. I was very happy as it was worth nothing sitting in my jewelery box. I got the cheque on Friday 15th of January and put it in the bank on Saturday. We put a hold on it until Friday 22nd of Janaury just to make sure it will clear. There should be no problem, but thought we had better make sure just in case. Other people who have used this company have had no problem.

So if you have old jewellry laying around and want some money this may be worth your while. Now with everything in life, you do it at your own risk. This has worked for me, but may not for you, so do your own research first. All I can say I am happy with the results and this is the company I used.
I ordered some bulbs and flowers online on Sunday at Vesey's I have ordered from them before and have had good luck with them. On the north side of the house, I wanted to make a hosta garden, and so I ordered these I bought the 8 pack. I also bought four different varieties of Gladiolus, as I have never grown them before, and thought if they did well I may be able to sell some as well. I got this one, this one, this one and this one. Finalkly I got these Dahlia's, again it's a flower I have never grown before. From now until March 10, 2010 if you order $50 from the catalog, you get an additional $25 off, the coupon code is: SA251 Now not sure if it applies to all the things online as well, but you could try?

Today's Money Saving Tip:
Start a garden. Gardening is an inexpensive hobby if you have a yard. Just rent a tiller, till up a patch, plant some plants, keep it weeded, and you’ll have a very inexpensive hobby that produces a huge amount of vegetables for you to eat at the end of the season. I like planting a bunch of tomato plants, keeping them cared for, then enjoying a huge flood of tomatoes at the end of the summer. We like to eat them fresh, can them, and make tomato juice, sauce, paste, ketchup, pasta sauce, and pizza sauce. Delicious (and very inexpensive)!
(Not sure if you have clicked yet, but I didn't write all these tips that I keep posting, and this is one I didn't write, as the regulars will know I don't grow many tomatoes myself, as I am the only one that eats them!!)
