In our family we call it 'flat surface disease'. We either decorate it or let things fall into piles. I forced myself to enjoy clear spaces. Set a timer. Clear everything off. Put everything back where it goes. Take a picture. It's easier to clean with less items in the way. Do it every day. Think of it as resetting it for the next time in a few seconds… instead of spending all that time clearing it off again.
One thing I have learned to try to do is to look behind me or look back when leaving an area. Then I can see that I may need to clean up. Another thing that helps me is to set a timer for a couple of minutes and pick up the area.
