I just tend to clove hitch the lead line into the proper point of whatever anchor I built. Then I yell down. Line Fixed! for the cleaner.

It's preferable to be able to separate a couple good points so the fixed line, next belay point and haul point don't interfere with each other. Also it makes it much easier to see what is going on so you or your partners don't screw up in a dangerous manner. You do what you can to be organized safely, simply, quickly and efficiently depending on circumstances.

If one must overlap various things attached to the anchor bear in mind what order everything will be needing to come off so that your next pitch breakdown goes smoothly and efficiently. This of course takes experience so that it becomes second nature. It's an important part of walling and just takes time to develop.
