I keep one main folder for all my new apps, documents, pictures, etc. I call it Downloads and store in my home folder. I save everything there. All my downloaded apps, music, digital camera pics or other things go there. If I download something I know I want or where it should go then I put it in its proper place. Then when my drive gets near full I start to go through the clutter but at least its in one place not spread out all over. That would also make it easier to get rid of duplicates. I have found that it greatly cuts down on organizing and monthly maintenance time, not to mention you have not "clutter" all over the drive. Especially if some of it is clutter you don't want other to see over your shoulder.
