    I downloaded about 2000 sound effects, and i just can't keep my itunes library organized. Is there a way where not to put these "songs" in my library?

    There's no way to play them in iTunes without adding to the library. However, you don't have to let iTunes manage where you keep those files. Just uncheck these boxes:
    iTunes > Preferences > Advanced > organize & copy checkboxes.PNG
    You can also keep all those files in a separate playlist, to better manage them, and you can change the Media Kind to something other than Music, so they won't show up in your Music listings. You can also set "Skip when shuffling:" to Yes, so they won't be played when shuffling songs.
