"Garage Sale" on Pop Matters!
"I think when people break up and chunk the other person's things out on the lawn, it's not only lazy, but a missed opportunity. Not to mention, it makes all your neighbors embarrassed for you, which makes borrowing milk just plain awkward. A better idea is to take all those things you'd be tossing out the window in a blind rage, and calmly selling them in a garage sale. It's a no-brainer. You make some cash off the ex's possessions, then go buy you and your friends some margaritas. Who wins? You do. All the way to the bank."
