Australian Man Selling His Entire Life


A man in Australia is hoping to make a fresh start after a failed marriage by putting his entire life up for sale on the auction website eBay.

Ian Usher, 44, has decided to put everything he owns - including his three-bedroom home, car, and job - up for sale to fund his escape from painful memories.

Bids for the "life package" will start at just one Australian dollar, but Mr Usher is hoping to pocket £230,000 from the sale on the internet auction website.

Mr Usher, who emigrated from Scarborough six years ago and became an Australian citizen in 2006, split from his wife Laura last year after five years of marriage.

The split from the woman he calls "the best girl in the world" has left Mr Usher desperate for a new life elsewhere, without the prolonged pain of having to sell off their belongings bit by bit.

He said: "My life here is absolutely fantastic, but I just want to make a clean break and start again literally, so I am selling everything lock, stock and barrel, from the contents of my wardrobe to my kettle, and from my cutlery to my car. My aim is to walk away at the end of the eBay auction with my wallet in one pocket and my passport in the other, go to the airport and just jump on the first available plane to anywhere. My tale is a bit of a sad one, but I am not trying to sell anyone a sob story."
