How do you manage your home screen icons?

How do you order the icons in your home screen?
Do you use folders? Sort alphabetically? Games by gameplay mechanic? How do you arrange your icons?

I have infinidock on my jailbroken 3gs so i put all my utilities and news apps in the dock then have my games sorted by icon colour in the main part (except page 1 which is my current favourite games. )

I've put the Apple preinstalled apps in a folder on the dock. The first two pages is with apps i use frequently and then i have a ton of folders with games, sorted i genres.

I only have 3 icons, all on my dock. Music, Applications (with all stock applications and AppStore applications), and Games. <3 Infinifolders

Home screen is stock, except for system related apps (Terminal, iFile, Winterboard, etc.) in the Utilities folder. Second page has folders: Apps A-M, Apps N-Z, Games A-M, Games N-Z, and then a couple of "feature" items and then my latest acquisitions follow (until they get "put away").

*Infinifolders required obv.

Second page is full of all my games.
Third page is all my entertainment apps.

First three screens are apps, including the pre-installed ones.
After that, I have four pages of games.
And on the dock, I keep my music, videos, iTunes, App Store...

...and Cydia.

EDIT: added a thumbnail of my main game page. I organize my pages of games depending on how often I play them.
