Life For Sale

Hoping to start anew after recently divorcing his wife of five years, a 44-year-old Perth, Australia resident will put his job, car, house and all belongings up for auction.

The ultimate spring cleaner, Ian Usher, hopes to walk away with his passport, the clothes on his back, and, if all goes according to plan, an extra $500,000 in his wallet.

"My tale is a bit of a sad one, but I am not trying to sell anyone a sob story," Usher told a local newspaper.

So, a sob story might not be on the auction block, but everything else is -- even his group of friends.

The eBay bidding starts June 22 and will last for a week.
