Tales From the Clearance Rack

According to the Garbage Project conducted at the University of Arizona, "what people have owned--and thrown away--can speak more eloquently, informatively, and truthfully about the lives they lead than they themselves ever may."

If the things that we own and discard do indeed reveal something about our character then what do the things that were unwanted and unasked for have to tell us? What shortcomings or miscalculations are revealed by the vast swaths of things that were never important to anyone or treasured? What is the significance of the discount rack?
