The video is an interesting examination of the American culture of clutter. Why do we feel so compelled to collect so much stuff?
I have been using the newly launched (on iOS) eBay Mobile app to turn the clutter in my house into cash. It’s lots of fun. I list things while I’m cleaning the house. So when I watched this video, “A Cluttered Life: Middle-Class Abundance“ from the University of California TV, I saw dollar signs all over the clutter in these people’s houses. Cha ching! (That’s also the noise the app makes when I sell something. I love that noise.) But the families these archaeologists examined are hording it! Stop hording. Sell!
I’m hoping to cash in some of this junk and go on one of these Last-Minute Cruise Deals from $189! – Expires 3/31/13.
