Something I didn't know until just now ... you can add one or more spacers to your Dock.

Open Terminal, and type (or paste):

defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-apps -array-add '{tile-data={}; tile-type="spacer-tile";}' && killall Dock

You now have an extra space - you can move (and remove) it like any other icon and organize your icons by separating for example work related icons and private related icons.
