A slightly finer variation of this is to continuously stash while you keep 
the things for the next commit in the working tree, using the --keep-index 
parameter. This workflow is described in the docs for 
stash<https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-stash.html>(but note 
that the short form 'git stash --keep-index is sufficient):

       Testing partial commits
           You can use git stash save --keep-index when you want to make 
two or more commits out of the
           changes in the work tree, and you want to test each change 
before committing:

               # ... hack hack hack ...
               $ git add --patch foo            # add just first part to 
the index
               $ git stash save --keep-index    # save all other changes to 
the stash
               $ edit/build/test first part
               $ git commit -m 'First part'     # commit fully tested change
               $ git stash pop                  # prepare to work on all 
other changes
               # ... repeat above five steps until one commit remains ...
               $ edit/build/test remaining parts
               $ git commit foo -m 'Remaining parts'

It takes a little getting used to, but it's awesome once you get into it.
