California Families @ Home: how to combat clutter

Posted on: November 4, 2012

Reading through an article on houzz about micro-sized San Francisco flats a reader gave the website for a recent study of California families. OMG! As the owner of a seven-room Cape, I simply cannot believe the amount of “stuff” these families had on display. You can read the full article, entitled Seven Common Challenges Facing Middle-Class Families at Home, which focuses on the following:

  • clutter
  • the garage = the new junk drawer (pictured above)
  • the Costco-effect: stockpiling
  • Master suites: are they a waste of space?
  • spending renovation dollars wisely
  • yard-usage
  • fragmented dinners & convenience foods

A book – the end result of this research, which is summed up in the article Trouble in Paradise, is Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century: 32 Families Open their Doors.
