Ah, Costco. It’s hard to resist stocking up as you stroll down those abundant aisles, stacked with 20-packs of everything you’ll ever need during your busy day-to-day life. But how do all those frozen dinners, snack foods and household supplies impact the homes and lives of typical dual-income American families?
In the second installment of UCTV Prime’s original series “A Cluttered Life: Middle-Class Abundance,” we follow three UCLA social scientists inside the homes of these families as they open pantries and peer inside refrigerators to reveal consumption patterns that make American households different from any other in the world. Discover how parents feed their children, where they shop, how much they buy and how they compare to families in Europe. It’s an eye-opening look at the way so many Americans live.
