I'm a webdev too.  I know the limitations of current CSS layout.  That doesn't
mean you should sacrifice good content organization.  It also doesn't mean
there's not another way to do it (there usually is).

However, CSS is already developing the tools you need.  Flexbox Layout (an
older version is available in most browsers, and the newer version is currently
being developed) and Grid Layout (should be experimentally available in IE10,
and is being worked on in other browsers) *do* let you do
document-order-independent layout.

Better to wait for those to come in and make your life infinitely easier than
try and bless your current hacks that are bad for both you and your users.
