Trite answer, the contexts that work for you.

For me I have contexts base don whether I have additional help or not so @outside with help and @outside by myself are good ways to split up my tasks. I've just added a set of contexts for @Farm Store and @Loom shop because I'm getting a lot more to do there and those are in separate buildings. It makes no sense for me to wade through 15 next actions that all require I be over at our farm store even though both places are technically "@home". I'll even make lists based on fields, I have one right now for @pear orchard pasture because we have a bunch of things to do there and the more I can do at one time the better.
@work and @home never made sense to me either because I live where I work but I still use contexts a lot as a way to help me focus my attention on what needs to be done.
Look at your existing lists and see if there are any common tools or places that you can use to better separate tasks.
