Organization seems to be a constant battle for me as well. Everyday though I am learning new techniques by trial and error to see what works.
I tend to make the procedures for organization more complicated at first and then dumb them down as I go along which I have come to realize doesn't work for me. The reason why I dumb down my procedures for organization is I lose the drive behind it due to the complications I have set forth.
I am currently on a path to minimize myself from doing this. What I do now is if a new task is at hand I start with the most basic aspects of it and go from there. Example: receipts are every business owners best friend when the tax man is knocking on the door, but I had a record system setup that was so complicated I didn't want to follow through and the pile kept growing and growing. Now all I have is a little cardboard box, all my receipts go in when a purchase is made and at the end of every day I log and file them, simple and sweet. (the box is little so I can only fit so many in it before it overflows, keeps me from saying "I will do it tomorrow")
On that note, my suggestion would be not to think of organizing as a mountain of overwhelming terribleness but a start from extremely simple and work upwards from there. At that point everything should organize itself over time. This I have found has worked for me.
