I find the state of my mobile home screen to be the reflection of who I am.
It is also an important factor for focus and productivity — I don't want to get distracted by new messages from Instagram or Twitter every time I unlock my phone.
For me, everything must have its own place and purpose. That's why every month, I spend 15-30 minutes organizing apps and widgets on my phone screen.
I have 4 different home screens.
1 - Main screen
The screen I use 80% of the time.
It contains only the essential things I need for work or daily routines.
All the useful shortcuts reachable within 1 tap.
It has a calendar widget so I can keep track of my agenda.
2 - Travel screen
I use this screen when I'm out of home/office.
It has the apps and widgets that I use mostly when I'm outside.
3 - Utilities screen
It is just a storage of other apps that I refer to from time to time.
4 - Fun screen
The last and the least accessible screen is the screen with games and media apps.
The general rule is simple — keep the apps you use every day reachable within 1-2 taps. Keep the apps that usually distract you away from your main screen.
