Gold Cash In

I have cashed some old jewellery in today. I have had these items in my jewellery box for years and could not possibly tell you the last time I got them out let alone wore them. I decided to cash them in as they were not sentimental pieces. I cashed in a necklace, bracelet and a few old rings. I got back £270 cash which I am going to put towards some stuff I need for the new house. I saw some items at Ikea that I wanted, a new bed for my daughter and a cabinet which came to coincidentally £269. I am going to use my cash bonus to buy the items. I may even treat myself to a lucky dip with the leftover £1.... TTFN x


  1. Fantastic!! Well done.

    My Ikea draws that I purchased second hand 2 years ago (in great condition) has fallen apart. It couldn't handle the tropical humidity in the monsoon season. I need to get it out of the bedroom and to the dump this week. No wonder Ikea doesn't have a shop here. It likes cooler weather.

  2. Great idea,good luck with that lucky dip x

  3. Yes, I agree a good idea. I could get rid of some of my things at some point.

  5. A great home improvement method you can use is to actually check your faucets every year and do preventative maintenance on them. This way, you can avoid those annoying leaks and even those major breaks. It might seem like a hassle now, but you'll be preventing a lot of work in the future. Cheap Loft Insulation has become the most environmentally friendly ways of save energy and cost. Look out for more details

    1. Hi Carry Tim, thanks you are right about the preventative maintenance. we actually had our loft insulated earlier this year so we are now feeling the benefit . :-)
