No More Working From a Pile of Files

So your Mac is a mess. Maybe you’re a packrat or you just love putting everything on your Desktop. Here’s a simple 4-step process to get your Macbook organized and tame the chaos! It won’t organize itself… but this is the closest thing to it.

One more great tip to not get lost in a pile of files is to go into your Finder > Preferences in the file menu, and make it so that a new Finder window does not open All My Files but your Home Folder instead. This will show you your actual filing system when you open a new Finder window, instead of doing a random search for all the files you have and dumping them in one place. Organization is bliss.
