$210 for 20 minutes, not bad

Got up early this morning and headed out to Cashville in Nashville. I had been gathering up my old rings, broken necklaces, silver and bracelets for a while now. I decided to take them to see how much I could get for them. Well, I had $210 worth and I won't miss them at all. They had been laying in the bottom of my jewelry box taking up space, I couldn't wear them, so there!

I took some of my silver serving pieces and found that most were silver-plated and Cashville won't take those. I had two candelabras and while they were sterling, he would only give me $10 for those. I decided I could get more tax write off as a donation than $10 so I kept those.

This is just a baby step toward clearing out the "stuff."

I didn't go to the RV show this weekend. Margie went yesterday and told me there were no vendors to speak of and I'm not interested in RV's so I knew it would be a waste of time, money and energy to go. Hey, it's free HBO this weekend anyway. It's cold and feels good to stay home.

You've been on a roll recently with your blog. It's interesting to read. Wow, $210!! The next time I am watching tv for any length of time, I'll have to start going through my "jewels" also. Will keep you posted on that.
