More people today are worrying about their retirement. It used to be a time in your life to look forward to, but with a sour economy and not much money left in Social Security, people are fearful. And they have every right to be. People approaching the retirement age are suddenly realizing they didn't save enough or something came up along the way that cost them big time.
What you need to do is start saving young, yes this means you recent college graduates. Once your student loans are paid off, it's time to start putting whatever money you can aside. But another way to make the retirement fund grow is to sell what you no longer need, a.k.a. diamond jewelry. There is no better time than now to start sorting through old jewelry and selling diamonds for cash. You'll want to get rid of gold and silver too, especially now that the price of gold has increased. Selling diamonds isn't going to pay for your new Florida condo, but it is something and something is better than nothing.
It's never too early and any money you can stow away is good. Don't let retirement sneak up on you. Be prepared for your future.
