The holidays are quickly approaching, and along with chilly weather, yummy food and visits from family comes extra expenses. Holiday expenses never seem to just include gifts either. There are decorations, food, and travel costs as you shuttle from party to party or even bigger travel expenses if you will be going long distances to visit family or friends you rarely get to see. All of these costs can start to add up quickly and put a strain on an average family’s budget. Some folks are finding that selling their unused or broken gold, jewelry and watches is a great way to make some easy cash. Raymond Lee Jewelers makes selling your unused or broken gold pieces and jewelry easier than ever.
According to the American Research Group Inc. the average American family will spend upwards of $850 on holiday expenses. When you consider that most families are already on a stretched budget, shoving an extra $850 worth of expenses in during one month can literally “break the bank.” This does not have to be the case for you and your family. If you are located in the South Florida area, Raymond Lee Jewelers has a great location in Boca Raton, FL. Since 1983 Raymond Lee Jewelers has been the premier location for selling all types of gold pieces. Your holidays do not have to be a stressful time. Raymond Lee Jewelers can help.
In most cases when a family discovers that they are going to be short on holiday funds, they immediately fall into the holiday debt trap. There are plenty of places willing to loan you extra holiday money with giant interest rates attached. This may seem like a quick fix at first, but most families find that this actually just gets their new year off on the wrong foot with extra bills that do not fit well in their budget. According to financial author Annette O’Connor, the debt you can accrue during one holiday season can actually haunt you for up to four years. Talk about your Ghost of Christmas Past!
Using those credit cards to pay for holiday expenses turns into a problem, because most people jack up the balance on their cards during the holidays, but then continue to only pay the minimum balance when January and the New Year rolls around. This means that, even though you may think you breezed through the holidays without a hitch you have actually dug yourself just a little deeper into your debt hole without even knowing it. You will also be spending $200-300 dollars over the course of the next year in added interest payments to your new larger credit balance. That $200-300 could have been going into a Christmas savings account for the next holiday season. When you look at the long term effects of using credit to pay for your holiday expenses, it is easy to understand why this is not the best route to take.

At Raymond Lee Jewelers we know that selling unused or broken gold pieces is a great way to earn some extra cash. Here are a few other great ideas for earning a few extra dollars this holiday season to ensure you do not go into your new year with new debt.
Part Time Work
Many individuals find that working a part time job for a few months before the holiday season greatly helps to offset holiday expenses. There are a lot of seasonal businesses that need part time help around the holidays including, Christmas tree farms and retail stores.
With the ease of the internet available to us, the age of old fashioned yard sales has become almost obsolete. With a few clicks you can sell any used item in your home to anyone in the country. This translates into one huge yard sale! Going through your garage or attic can produce some great items for reselling over the internet. Every item you sell is more debt free money toward your holiday expenses.
Another trend that is really taking root in our culture since the recent recession is consignment. Basically a consignment shop will take your items, usually brand name clothing, and will put it on display for you in their shop, and when the item sells you are paid a percentage of the selling price. This is an especially good idea for people who have invested a lot of money in their wardrobes. Making back some of that cash can make a huge difference in your holiday spending money.
Making an appointment to have your gold pieces evaluated at Raymond Lee Jewelers, along with some of these other ideas, can have you well on your way to a happy, debt free Christmas. To make an appointment at our Boca Raton location please contact Raymond Lee Jewelers today.
