My file system
I have an intricate system where I put files according to their purpose and context thus I always know where to find them. And I access everything from Alfred.
My Desktop is nearly always empty. It acts as a kind of
temp folder where every file that is put there needs to be acted upon and either moved to some other place in my system or deleted.
All my actual documents (books, papers..) are put there. The folder synced with iCloud and I often access it from my phone via Alfred search.

I try to keep this folder like
Desktop always empty. This is the folder where I download things to from the browser as well as other places.
I use this workflow to scan through contents of it from Alfred.
Everything that is code is put into this folder.

I often love checking out various GitHub repos. Everything that I clone, I clone into this folder. I use km macro that will clone the repo that is currently open in my Safari tab. It will put the repo in
~/src/clones and then open it in VS Code. I also have similar macros that will only clone the repo or clone the repo and open it in Sublime Text.
I then filter contents of the folder with this workflow.
Inside this folder I keep all code from orgs I am working or worked on.
The folder is OSS on GitHub. Inside this folder I have a bunch of language/framework specific folders. I use it to test out new tools/ideas.
Contains different extensions to various apps in form of workflows/plugins.

All my Alfred workflows are placed there. And each one is symlinked with workflow-install.

Use Dropbox to sync configuration files. I also keep this wiki in
Write dir in Dropbox so I can edit it on the phone with Ulysses.
