I seem to be constantly changing the apps that I have pinned to my homescreen. I'll pin and unpin apps after trying to use the app, or telling myself that I will actually use an app like the New York Times app or the AllRecipes.com app (cooking... ha! wishful thinking)
My primary 8 tiles always stay the same with my extra ones varying from time to time
My current set up is as follows:
[internet explorer] [me]
[linked email] [music+video]
[ calender ]
[ pictures ]
[ESPN] [Xbox Live]
What does everyone else have for their homescreens?
It's a pretty rough layout for my homescreen, I know. If anyone knows if there is a nonhomebrew screenshot app I would appreciate that :)

Top many to list. But to summarize; several of the built-in apps, 4 emails, 3 folders for; favorite apps, map/search apps and storage/SkyDrive/Dropbox apps, a couple live tile Sports score apps, a couple quick access note apps, speed dial, battery meter, network dashboard, parcel tracked, urban dictionary, weather channel, and a bunch of others. Think it's 42 right. Trying not to add any more.
Oh, and always a few temp tiles for reminders, notes, etc., that fall in below my Settings/Marketplace tiles at the bottom of my screen. The temp tiles get deleted daily.

I have not opened Office or Weave yet. Some of these I just put on there but I don't use them on a regular basis or haven't tried them...yet. I just don't want them to get lost on page 2 and forgotten about.

I keep things clean and simple:
The "Alarms" Tile I especially like. The time of the next alarm is indicated on the tile. I always get paranoid that I have my alarm set on the wrong time.
My philosophy is if the app doesn't show up without having to scroll down, there isn't that much a point of pinning the app anyways. I considered removing the "Pictures" tile; but kept it simply because it was aesthetically pleasing.
