Experts tell the Wall Street Journal that what we accumulate reflects some of our deepest thoughts and feelings.  For example, a mother of young children who’s hanging on to their clothing so, someday, she might say, “See, I treasured you.”

Whether it’s piles of unread newspapers or collecting empty margarine tubs or old electronics, experts say emotions are lurking beneath.
