I get it. It seems like everything is so expensive nowadays. The struggle is definitely real. Especially this time of year. If you're like me, you may have spent a little too much on those summer activities. Now that it's back to school with clothes and supplies. The cost builds up.

Extra cash sure does come in handy and as it turns out, Abilene has several businesses that pay cash for precious metals like gold and silver. Lately, a friend of mine needed some extra cash. She went through all her jewelry and was surprised at how much she had that she doesn't wear any longer. It's just sat in her jewelry box. She turned it into cash.
