Another pattern that works for some people is a completely clean surface. For these folks, it really helps to designate cupboard space in their kitchens for appliance garages and easy to grab cooking items.
I like open space, but totally open turns out to flummox me with too many choices. Instead I stock the edges of my space with only what I need most often or wish to encourage myself to use. I leverage this pattern to get tasks done by putting that item in the "launch pad" area of my desk.
