It goes beyond the cost of a cluttered refrigerator. Disorganization saves a little because putting something in its place costs less, but the later cost of finding it again, or finding the thing that should have been where you stuffed the pickles is large. Efficiency says have a place for things and don’t put other things in that place.
The question you must address is does that cost save more than the cost of disorganization. Most people who are organized would argue yes. Recent example.
How much would it have cost to check for the wallet before leaving?
Less or more than the cost to not do so?
Organized works. It has always been so. The aphorism “A stitch in time saves nine.” is ancient. So is “for want of a nail.” They persist because they are right.

Planning is just a form of organization, but in time as well as space.
