I don't know about organizing....I am anything BUT organized!

But storing seed at room temp in regular area is a way to lose viability fast...

Drying is very important too. (seedbanks use glass containers and silica desiccant) Moisture kills viability. temp fluctuations kill viability and high temps kill viability...

I do not know of any that should NOT be stored in the freezer. I put all my extra seed in the freezer if I can't use it. And it not so much kills all the pests as prevents any damage (because they are not active if they do survive freezing).
