Junk is something you've kept for years

 -- and throw away three weeks before you need it.

I was in a meeting yesterday with friends and one mentioned they're cleaning out a hoarder's house. She described it and I shuddered. I dislike clutter of any kind, but then I realized that one man's clutter is someone else's comfort.

My sister thinks my house is cluttered. Hers is very minimalistic while mine has Things. All Things I use, but more Things than hers. I have bookcases, she has none. I have cubby drawers. She has none. I have a somewhat large desk, 2 computer monitors, and she has one small desk, one computer.

I use all my Things. Yes, I could pare down my Things, but I use them. Why pare down? Perhaps hoarders feel that way, too. I could get rid of Things but why? I have room for them and I use them. Is that the key difference? I use my Things?

Hmm. Something to consider?
