Make some extra cash with your old bling

Does this look familiar to you? Is this something you are facing down on a daily basis? Tightwad wishes she had your problems; wondering just what the heck to do with piles of unwanted bling.
You know that you can recycle plastic, paper and glass, but did you know that you can kick it up a notch and recycle your jewelry? If you are in the fortunate position of not knowing what to do with pieces that you won't wear again (read: gifts from that ex-boyfriend), a good place to start is researching how to downsize it in a way that is both good for you, and good for the environment.
Tightwad has discovered a program that recycles unwanted gold, silver and platinum. Not only do you get cash back for it, but participating in Birk's Jewelry Exchange program is great way to be socially responsible with unwanted jewelry. Tightwad loves this, because every little bit counts... the more we can recycle, the less raw materials are extracted. It's a win-win.
