I had a similar problem until I adapted my workflow. Now I only have as
many workspaces open as I need at any given time. If I'm about to start
a new task, I open another workspace. (Note, if you drag an application
icon to the add workspace button in the Activities Overview that
application will open on a new workspace.)

It's true that workspaces can't be rearranged (that would be sweet), but
shuffling applications from one workspace to another isn't that hard or
time consuming if you really care about their order.
