I'd just take an educated guess for each piece. So if you bought 10 things and paid $100.00 (to keep the math simple) if they were equal value it's easy. If not value 3 things at 5.00, 2 things at 7.00 etc. until you get to the $100.00. It's harder and not really needed to be accurate, just reasonable. If one item was worth $90.00 and the other 9 $1.00 it becomes easier.

Oh, it all helps. This method is what I'm inclined to do because with jewelry lots, often there are miscellaneous pieces -- LOTS of miscellaneous pieces -- out of which I may find a wearable piece or two that I can sell and handfuls of things that I'm going to offer in a junk lot on eBay anyway. That's where it gets tricky.
