i would divide it based on charity. the local shelter got anything that they could use: old towels, bath mats, anything that could be used to store food and supplies, etc. a local ministry (similar to salvation army, but also ran shelters and work programs) would get whatever i couldn't auction off, but was too good to toss. and then anything worth anything, i would send to the auction house for auction.
now, i don't own anything, so, i have nothing to give away.
