An interesting look at what it is to be a two income middle class American family in the twenty first centuryLet s see Amassing stuff often than their homes can hold totally saturating their houses in material possessions overflowing closets and garages even putting themselves in debt to do this and suffering psychological stress and anxiety primarily the mothers because of it Some pictures show families living surrounded by basically chaotic messes An interesting correlation was found between a cluttered fridge magnets papers photos and a cluttered home Eating less fresh foods and depending on processed boxed foods Their study found that when the parents chose to cook a meal from fresh foods it actually only took minutes longer than the boxed foods It is not that boxed foods are faster to prepare it s that they reuire less thought less planning Families are stockpiling foods from warehouses like Costco filling not only their kitchen s pantry and fridge but overflowing into the laundry room and garage These small families have so much food stockpiled that they usually need two fridges to hold it all Despite the fact that people often have yard space and children have things like swing sets and trampolines available in their yards nobody is actually spending any time out there Instead they are inside partaking in sedentary activities mostly staring at TV and computer screens Families spend most of their time in the kitchen Not just for cooking and eating but the kitchen has become a command center for gathering scheduling and planning Everybody thinks they want a big master bedroom but what they would actually benefit from is having an additional bathroom

characters Life at Home in the Twenty First Century characters ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Jeanne E. Arnold Jeanne E. Arnold ☆ 8 download Winner of the 2014 John Collier Jr Award Winner of the Jo Anne Stolaroff Cotsen PrizeLife at Home in the Twenty First Century cross cuts the ranks of important books on social history consumerism contemporary culture the meaning of material culture domestic architecture and household ethnoarchaeology It is a distant cousin of Material World and Hungry Planet in content and style but represents a blend of rigorous science and photography that these books can claim Using archaeo. I checked out both this book and it s companion book from the library both about the same study I was thinking this book would just be the accompanying photography book to the main book that goes into detail about the study results Instead the authorseditors attempted to just re write the first book using photos and less words Why I have no idea There is no point to it What they should have done is this Instead of publishing a few of the floor plans print all 32 of them Instead of showing a variety of photo sizes mainly smaller photos they should have put one photo per page especially of the cluttered houses so we could see the images in detail Of course sometimes it would have made sense to print smaller images Like why not post an image of each of the 32 fridges You could fit all of them onto 4 pages Then show the most messy least messy and average fridges juxtaposed with their livingfamily room The authors tell of a link between a cluttered fridge door and cluttered house Why not show the reader insteadAnother bone of contention was that the photography book had no images of the few minimalist houses the study viewed Why not What exactly do the authors mean by minimal Why not show us the rooms so we can decide for ourselves Why not compare and contrast rooms and houses During the section on outdoor use the authors mention only one house used their backyard for than an hour at a time I d like to see their backyard in order to see if the layout or design facilitates that behaviorFinally I didn t care for the images of the owners in their housesI was distracted by them It made me focus on the people and less on the surroundings which is what the photos were meant to show us That one photo of the mom sitting at a desk with her dirty bare feet propped up gross Why show that image How embarrassing for that womanWhat I mainly got out of this book was that a lot of people have cluttered unappealing houses and no taste Not bad taste but the absence of it I can appreciate someone decorating in a style I don t care for They own their style they enjoy it Maybe art nouveau or southwestern are not styles I like but I can respect someone who decorates their house in that style Most people in this book looked like they lived in a thrift store with no rhyme or reason Just a bunch of crap that didn t go together I can recall two images of rooms that looked nice not my taste but put together The rest Lord It s like the before houses in Clean House with Niecy Nash The nosy neighbor in me enjoyed flipping through the book but it could have been much much better
