What is Your Clutter Tolerance Level?

This is not me!
I can tolerate an unmade bed or dishes in the sink. But piles of papers, books, and clothes muddy my thoughts and inhibit my creativity. I'm not OCD, but I do like a fairly neat environment, or I become distracted and find it hard to concentrate.

Plus, taking thirty minutes to find a bill or a set of keys distracts me from what I consider my true purpose: to love God an others.
