If everything fits tucked away in drawers, one is not, IMO, in an advanced state of clutter. Though I acknowledge that many people do like to clear out their drawers. (Even I have been known to do it, from time to time; though there's never enough time to do them all.)

-- what's taking up most of the space piled up on surfaces is probably going to vary a good bit from household to household. But I think the thing about books may be that most people seem to think of them as something one reads once and then is done with; why keep it? For those of us who re-read a lot, this is an uncomfortable frame of mind; but it's pretty common.
