You know what they say; hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

When one woman from Minnesota found out that her husband had cheated on her, she got creative with her anger, hosting an "ex-husband sale" garage sale where she put out all her philandering ex's belongings on their front lawn.

She also took some inspiration from that infamous Carrie Underwood song and flattened the tires of his SUV, spray painting the word "cheater" on the side of the vehicle for passerby to see.

Local officials say the woman didn't break any laws, so will face no legal repercussions for her actions.

Women aren't the only ones to get creative during relationship splits, as Kevin Cotter's book "101 Uses For My Ex-Wife's Wedding Dress" can attest to.

Would you exact revenge on a cheating lover?
