The best thing I heard at the conference today was that "clutter is a pile of unmade decisions".
I'm relatively organized, but I often find myself setting things aside because I don't know what I should do with it. I certainly like to have "a place for everything and everything in its place", but then I accumulate something new that doesn't have a home and it joins a pile for another day.
Same with bills. I hate paying bills. I put them off and they end up at the bottom of a pile... and then I get slapped with a fine.
Even as a "go-getter"--a "get 'er done" type person--there are far too many times when I just don't want to make the decision. And that's why my desk has stacks of footage and paper: I just don't feel like I can deal with it. Especially if the item in question doesn't have a home yet.
So, for me, clutter is often a pile of homeless stuff.
