I got some incredibly awesome ideas from David Allens book "Getting Things Done".
After about a year of applying what he talks about in his book here's what I've found to be most effective for me day-to-day.
His system of organization starts with this concept of capturing documents and list items he calls "buckets".
I have a 'bucket' in my backpocket everywhere in the form of a tiny spiral notebook. Its the same retangular shape of a legal pad except it's got tiny white notebook paper with blue lines.
I keep a number of different lists on about 3 different pages.
I have a list of things to do for school, a list of things to do for my online site, and a page I keep notes on like student access numbers or phone numbers or w/e.
This has lasted the test of time for me so if you find it useful I'll be happy you learned of it.
I've yet to organize my desk space the way David suggests although I've got that on my list of things to do.
