Eliminate Kipple

Eliminate Kipple

If you remove the kipple (clutter)from your life, you’ll have less stress, better concentration, and peace of mind.

What is Kipple? – Useless objects, like junk mail or match folders after you use the last match or gum wrappers or yesterday’s homeopape (newspaper). When nobody’s around, kipple reproduces itself. For instance, if you go to bed leaving any kipple around your apartment, when you wake up the next morning there’s twice as much of it. It always gets more and more. — from the book: “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”

I have always been a bit of a neat freak anyway, but after reading about kipple in the book “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” I’ve been even more diligent in the elimination of clutter.  You may not be aware of this book, but it was made into a movie you may be more familiar with (BladeRunner with Harrison Ford).  The movie doesn’t cover kipple nearly as well as the book, but you’ll see it lying around.

I find that I’m a lot more clumsy when there is kipple about.  If all of my counters are cluttered, I don’t have room to work on what I’d like.  That might be preparing dinner or working on my laptop.  I’ll be misplacing things, knocking things over, and getting more agitated by the moment.  If I keep the countertops clutter free, my mind is more focused and much more at peace.  The same goes for my garage, closet, and definitely my desk at work.

The more things you own, the more they own you. – Author Unknown
