I was about to comment and mention Marie Kondo after seeing Jon's previous comment. Something slightly related I learned from a friend recently is that the best way to be organized is just to do something as soon as you've got to clean/fold it. So when I come home and I take off my outer shirt I try to fold it and put it in a drawer, same for jacket, pants, and backpack, put them all where they belong. Another suggestion he made was that I keep only one set of bowl, plate, spoon, fork, knife. As soon as I use it, I was it. If I have more than one I have the inclination to just leave one in the sink and never clean but with only one I have to clean immediately which is easier to clean than after a day or two.
