Has anyone heard of this website? I remember a friend mentioning it in passing the first time Steve moved out but I didn’t give it much thought at the time. Now that things are completely over I am ready to investigate. It helps that Steve totally tried to screw me over on taxes and I need $5,000 to give the IRS by March 28. I’d like to keep my emergency fund as intact as possible so it sounds delightful to have Steve indirectly pay for the tax bill by selling my wedding rings and his (that I made him take off and leave on the day of his move out—he hesitated because at that time I really think he thought there was a chance to play this game again). As you all know I’m sure, I’m not going to get a lot of money by trying to sell it to a jeweler. I remembered this website and so I’ve started looking into it. I thought I’d open it up to the readers in case any of you have better ideas or know something about this website. It appears that there are two options. You can auction the items like ebay or you can get a direct offer from the company. Oh and you’ll love this tidbit: Steve took a pre-marital 401K withdrawal to buy the stupid ring to begin with! I didn’t know THAT until we had to pay the penalties for tax year 2009.
For those of you wondering, I will not be adding this $5,000 to my debt list. I have a date certain that it must be paid and I refuse to consider it part of my “blogging away debt.” Instead I am making plans to “find” $5,000 while still paying down my debt according to plan. The tax nightmare has only just begun…not for me though. I’ve “righted” everything and have a plan to pay what I owe. So glad I’m no longer connected to that train.
