Jewelry and Watches You No Longer Wear

Jewelry and watches are perhaps the hardest to part ways with, especially if you’ve received a lot of them as presents for birthdays, anniversaries or the holidays. Of course, keep those that mean something special to you!

In terms of jewelry, make sure you get your items appraised first. Then, clean them up to make sure they look great before listing them on websites like Worthy. Obviously, you could also take everything to a jewelry store or pawnbroker.

As for watches, well, does it make sense to have more than one pair? Alright, make it two. One for everyday wear, the other should be for special occasions. But that’s pretty much it!

    I have old record albums from the ’40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Where can I find out their value, and where can I sell them?

    1. Unless they are in VERY good condition, i.e. not played, let alone played to death like I know my albums were, the value is very little. Find an independent record store in your area (bingoole it) and ask them, bring them a list.

  2. Not very impressed with this article. Author seems to think we all move into a 500 square foot apartment. The last thing I will be getting rid of is my musical instruments and favorite old music, my treadmill, my gardening equipment, etc. Why not just write an article titled “how to host an estate sale and sell off everything you own.”

  3. Luanne – I tend to agree with you. This article should read what to sell when you have to move into assisted living….
