Well ladies, if you are going through a breakup where you have to divide things up, look below, I’ve got the top 8 ways to split your things up!
1. Make a List
First and foremost, you should make a list of everything that you own and everything that he owns. This way, there is no confusion when you are attempting to divide things up. Trust me ladies, this can save a lot of headache for you!
2. Do Not Destroy
Even if you have a really bad breakup, one of the worst things that you can do is start to destroy each others stuff. Just because you're broken up doesn't give you the right to automatically trash anything you had together. Remember ladies, if you destroy something, he might destroy something of yours right back.
3. Be Tactful
When you are working on dividing things up, remember to be tactful. You don't exactly have to be nice, but you do have to remember that you are dealing with not just a broken heart, but having to move everything. Below, we're going to talk about some of the ways that you can be tactful and how you can avoid the harsh words that you want to use when you're dividing things up.
4. Have a Garage Sale
Let's say that you two have been together for quite a while and you have accumulated a lot of stuff together. One of the greatest ways to ditch a lot of the stuff that you have together is to sell it. A garage sale can actually help cleanse the relationship and heck, you can make some extra money too!
5. Buy the Other out
A garage sale might be a good idea but when you are dealing with things like couches and dining room sets, it might be a good idea to buy the other out. Whoever wants to keep the dining room set will accept half of the payment of the original price from their ex. Trust me ladies, I had to do this and while it was hard, it was all just part of dividing things up.
6. Be Fair
Just because you might love something of your ex's, doesn't mean that you get to keep it. When you are working through how to divide things up, you've got to make sure that you are being fair. This is going to be hard in the beginning, but so worth it in the end.
7. Split up the Rooms
If you live together with your ex, you might want to split up rooms when you are moving out. He can take the bedroom while you work on the kitchen. That way, the entire situation doesn't have to be as uncomfortable and you won't have to deal with being in the same room together.
8. Be Civil
Finally ladies, make sure that you are civil. Saving up all of those harsh words and letting go of the past will be your best bet. It will also really help you get over the relationship and truly help you just move past it.
