Cash for Gold and Silver


I hosted a "Cash for Gold and Silver" party yesterday. When I had originally signed up to do this, I had no idea I would be making any money off it. My intention was to set it up and host so all of my lovely Mommy friends could come and make some quick and easy cash. Two weeks before the party I was talking with the organizer and she mentioned my share. I was confused. So she explained to me how it works.

Well, to make a long story short, I earned a total of $349 yesterday. $131 of it was just for hosting. Plus I get $50 for every person who hosts a party off my party. I already know of 4 actual parties set up and a few more thinking about it. So that is another $200.

I used my $349 to pay for a camera seminar I really wanted to go to. I have been dying to learn how to take digital photos better. I use to rock with the film stuff, but everything is digital now. Plus it is a weekend out. I have never been away from my 3 girls for a weekend. Oh my, what is my mind going to think.

I am not planning what I will do with the rest of the money because I don't actually get it until after the parties have taken place. So that would be like counting yur chickens before the eggs have even hatched. But it is exciting to think about.

One Mom got $2500 at my party for 3 gold coins she brought. WOW! Sadly, I did not get a % of it. But it really didn't bother me. I did this so the Moms could make money. I was very happy for her.

No Starbuck's this week and I have only gone out to lunch once. Not too bad.


  1. Wow!!! I wish I had some stuff, but I just have never been a big jewelry person! Good Job Jamie!

  2. Where on earth can I find some of those gold coins? lol

  3. Hi Jamie,
    I like your blog it's lovely. The process of selling the gold online is simple. One can communicate with the buyers or buying companies through emails, phone or fax. Prices are fixed as per the buy charts on their websites. By having the right information when you sell back gold items and jewelry, you can be assured a positive gold experience.

    The current market price of gold allows individuals to estimate what they can expect from a gold buyer and it also makes sure you are receiving the best price for your items. Your unwanted jewellery , which has been collecting dust in your drawers the past few years, is worth much more than you think. You should choose a buyer that purchases all types of gold. Some of your jewelry and gold may be of different types. Eighteen karat gold is different from 10 karat gold, and the price will vary accordingly.

    Some gold buyers will only purchase gold that is fourteen karat or higher. Unfortunately, this may leave you with some pieces they won't buy. look for a company that will purchase gold from eight karat on up to 24 karat gold.
