A man from Australia sold his life to the highest bidder on eBay.Ian Usher, a British immigrant, offered everything from his house, to his possessions, to his friends in the auction.

He had hoped to raise nearly half a million U.S. dollars to start a new life after a painful breakup with his wife, but the auction only brought in $384,000.

"I guess I'm a little bit disappointed at the final price. I'd hoped it to be a little higher than that, but I am committed to selling and moving on and making a fresh start," Usher said.

Usher says he plans to achieve some of his life-long goals over the next few years and is starting a new Web site aimed at doing just that.
