You can use git add -p [filename] to only add some parts of a file to
the index before committing to avoid committing unrelated parts of
code together

git commit --amend can probably be helpful to only get a single commit
which makes more sense

git rebase -i can be helpful to clean up such messes :)

I never managed to become disciplined enough to do that, good thing
the commands mentioned above exists ;) Feel free to contact me by
email, jabber, irc, ... if you need git help (even if this is about
trivial stuff).

Keep up the good work!
