Swimming in Stuff

Americans sure do love their stuff. And you’re probably swimming in even more of it after the gift-giving holiday season, making for an overstuffed start for the New Year.

But what does all of that clutter say about us?

The new series “A Cluttered Life: Middle-Class Abundance,” premiering January 11 on UCTV Prime, attempts to answer that question by following a team of UCLA anthropologists into the stuffed-to-capacity homes of dual income, middle-class American families in order to truly understand the food, toys, and clutter that fill them.

This fascinating three-part series offers up a whole new way to understand ourselves. Don’t miss it, Fridays on UCTV Prime through January 25. Watch the trailer now and visit the series website to learn more about the book that came out of this unusual research,  “Life at Home in the 21st Century: 32 Families Open Their Doors.”
