H&FF Radio: De-Cluttering Your Life
WASHINGTON (4/12/13)--Home & Family Finance Radio catches spring-cleaning fever this week as guests tell you how to de-clutter your home, computer, email inbox--even your mind.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  •  "The Psychology of Clutter." Dr. Lise Van Susteren, a Washington D.C. psychiatrist, discusses why people are prone to clutter and why that inclination leads to modern behavior such as friending hundreds of people you barely know on Facebook.
  • "The Clutter Whisperer." Susan Fleischman, a professional organizer and owner of Clutterfree, Chicago, offers advice about how to get organized and rid your home of clutter.
  • "Clutter in the Internet Age." Jennifer Stewart, owner of Organizing by Jennifer, St. Louis, offers strategies for cleaning up your computer, winnowing your email inbox, and better understanding the software you use every day.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at Credit Union National Association (CUNA). The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve the country worldwide.

Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. ET on the Radio America Network. The show also is carried on American Forces Radio Network. The one-hour program devoted to consumer finance issues is brought to you by America's credit unions and their more than 95 million members, and is presented by CO-OP Network.

CUNA and Radio America are podcasting Home & Family Finance through iTunes, Podcast Alley, Odeo, and other popular podcast library sites, as well as on Radio America and CUNA's websites.
