Just what you should keep/return after a breakup?

Breaking up is never easy, but now at least you can turn that heartbreak into a bit of cash.

Thanks to Neverlikeditanyway, the brokenhearted can sell those no-longer-wanted sentimental gifts from significant others to willing buyers who don't have that same attachment.

Users simply upload an image of the item they're looking to sell, write up a description and then set a "break-up price" lower, one assumes, than what it would be worth in the real world.

Is getting rid of everything in a huff much needed catharsis or simply bad karma? You decide.

If it's really just emotional baggage that you want to be rid of, you can also share sob stories at the same time through the site's The Juice, a forum that includes both the most horrific break-up stories and tips on how to survive a disappinting relationship -- particularly if it's not the first time around.

What did you do with your relationship leftovers? Sell them or chuck them?
