This is what it looks like right now. Which is actually pretty good... for me.
I am a horrible person. I am an organized computer programmer's nightmare. I never use the folders on my hard drive, I always click to save or drag images to my desktop, I always save documents to my desktop instead of in the documents folder, and I have no less than five different "Stickies" going at a time.
People often comment on it when having to use my computer. "How do you find anything!?" they cry. My personal laptop is even worse.
It used to be that I would only clean it off every couple of months, when it starts to get insufferably cluttered (or when I'm tired of not being able to see whatever cute picture I have as my background image). In the last few months, though, I've gotten better and organizing my icons. I still save everything to the desktop, but at least once a week, usually on Fridays, I will go through and file stuff away or trash things I don't need. But it's hard to break old habits.
Where are you at with desktop icons? Right now (and no cheating!), how many icons do you have on your computer's desktop?
(Also: If you have any organizing tips, GIMMIE! I need them! Obviously.)
