I arrange them by simulcast day and time. That way, so long as I keep up, I can participate in the episode discussion without having to worry too much about spoilers.

I watch simulcast as they air on CR, then I pick one or two other shows that pique my interest-along with my backlog of Blu-rays- to fill the gap between the simulcast.

I add new and continuing CR simulcasts in my queue by the day of week that CR shows them, and usually watch them within a day or so of when they are simulcast. That's the first part of my queue.

After that I have a few catalog dramas that I think I might be interested in, and watch them as the mood strikes. Often when it does, I'll watch an episode of the same show every day or so, until I'm finished.

Last in my queue is the catalog anime that I've decided is worth giving a go, and it's usually in whatever order I added it. I usually pick one of those to be my main title to watch on a somewhat regular basis, as time permits, and bump it to the first place in the "anime catalog section" of my queue. The others mostly just sit there unwatched until I finish or drop the one I'm more focused on, but occasionally I'm in the mood to try something different, so I'll pull an episode from something else in that part of the queue.

Once I've finished watching a series, or decided I don't want to finish it, it gets dropped from the queue.

I also watch some shows on other sites, like Funimation. The Funimation queue on Roku is kind of crappy even when it works and it mostly doesn't work, but I do try to add a few episodes of catalog titles to it as a reminder to myself. For the simulcasts I often don't remember when they air, so I just check the "Newest Episodes" or simulcast schedule every few days and watch what I've missed. Sometimes seeing the discussion thread get bumped is my reminder that a new episode is available.

I also keep a list of "want to watch" on ANN, but even when those titles are on CR or Funi I don't automatically add them to those queues. Every once in a while I'll browse through the list and track down a source of the title and acquire it or add to queue. That hasn't happened in a while because there's already too much in queue.

How do you decide what to watch and when?

What to watch:
Anything that is not shitty like Guilty Crown.

When to watch:
When I'm not busy with anything.

How do I organize the shows I watch:
I don't.

I watch particular shows on different days based on a simple order for example:

Monday: New Anime A
Tuesday: New Anime B
Wednesday: New Anime C
Thursday: New Anime D
Friday: New Anime E
Saturday: Anime Marathon
Sunday: Weekly Shounen time

I usually try to pick five new anime and watch them on weekdays even if it means I miss their actual release dates.
If I'm not able to watch them all on schedule or if I somehow forgot a series I'll marathon it on a Saturday.
Due to an absurd amount of Shounen's having their release date's on Sunday's I decided to have Sunday be Shounen time
If I'm fed up with a show and want to drop it I automatically try to find another one to replace it.

I know, it's not the best schedule but it's something that has been working for quite some time now.

With currently airing stuff, I just watch it all the day it comes out, drop if it gets boring.

For completed series, I just pick one that looks interesting and watch the whole thing in one go. Just have to go with the genre I'm in the mood for.

Haven't run into any problems with available time as of yet, but I'm living a NEET lifestyle at the moment so I have all this free time. Still, even considering having a full time job, I still don't see any issues with time (just have to save marathons for days off).

Being a shut-in helps too.

When it comes to simulcasts, I typically watch the episodes as soon as I can when they come out, though I tend to save the slice-of-life-esque shows for breakfeast watching and watch the action shows in the evenings. Something like Silver Spoon or Genshiken is great to wake up to, while I wouldn't want to watch Attack on Titan while eating.

As for older shows, I try to stick to having one (or in rare instances, two of very different genres) of those in progress at once and then just plow through them, otherwise it's WAY too easy for me to loose interest and get lost in the storyline.

By the day it comes out. Some days have too many anime, so I fall behind. It is really more like whatever I get to. For instance, I am behind on several anime due to watching Sasameki Koto since Crunchyroll is losing it's license on it. Whichever shows I feel are more entertaining at the moment are the ones I'll watch.

I watch the new episodes that come out of all the anime I am watching on that day, then I watch one or 2 others that are already finished and I may not have seen after for a couple of episodes.
