Quote of the Week: Kipple

Getting rid of clutter is hard, even for the most unsentimental and meticulous householder. You can't just throw stuff away; some of it might be worth something. Some of it could have great sentimental value or become a family heirloom, with time, and some of it might even be of use in the future, assuming there's a sudden and unexpected global crisis that can only be solved by a heroic act involving two types of unfashionable hat, a selection of tiny ceramic statues, and a huge pile of dog-eared paperbacks.
