 Im looking at selling things on Ebay again and I always start off by going through the clutter that I have accumulated. So my grandma passed away 4 years ago, and the family got together and split up her belongings. I got quite a few things, and it included some jewelery. Ive never really thought about selling it, until now. I have never wore it and dont think I ever would, but I feel so guilty for even thinking about it. Is this horrible of me? Or should I look at it logically and put the money towards my family?

Um, I got all of my deceased grandmother's stuff. I have thrown some stuff away....papers that no one needed. Some other stuff I am giving to charity. The things that are worth a penny that I don't want, I'm going to sell.

I wouldnt feel bad. I am not one for keeping things-- those are things. They are not your memory of her. You will still have those-- remember. Selling those things will not be a betrayal at all

I also tried to trade my grandmother's most valuable ring for a less valuable one from my adopted grandmother. My mom didn't want to trade.......she's just being petty. She would have gotten a $25K ring for one that was worth less than $2K but she's just being mean.

I wouldn't sell it. I'd save it for my children.
