 Organizing Files

How do you organize your files? I have a ~/data directory with all sorts of subdirectory trees, a ~/src directory with random source code inside grouped by language that I will never ever look at again, and then several other directory trees based on my thought of the moment. While this is terrible it works more than it fails.

"The problem: the filesystem on my Unix workstation was a mess. I couldn't find anything without grepping all over creation. About half the time, I'd actually find something useful. Usually I'd get no hits at all, or I'd match something like a compiled binary and end up hosing my display beyond belief."
