What may well happen is that we take the loose, unorganized clutter and organize it into bins, boxes, and containers and then have that take up so much space that it begins to clutter our living environment.
Clutter and excessive contents do not have to look a certain way in order for us to label them as being a distraction, a safety issue, or something that interferes with maneuvering through the home. They can be stacked in random piles, strewn about, placed here-and-there, piled neatly, or placed into storage containers. The issue is not so much how they are kept, in the long run, but that more than we need to live successfully and effectively in a space is kept.
We need to focus on decluttering but more in terms of volume retained than in how it is stored or organized.
