When making pedals, how do u guys place the components on the perfboard (not pcb) so that it occupies less space and is neat? Is there any particular method/guideline?

Im planning to make an MXR Dist+ Clone
MIJ Fender '57 Stratocaster
Vox AD15VT
PodXT Live
I work off a layout that I make with DIY Layout Creator - I always try and keep my jumpers to a minimum and my layout as logical as possible (power connections at the top, input on the right, output on the left, ground connections down the bottom, etc).
