[GRASS-user] best practices for managing locations

I am looking for advice on how to manage my locations. I have Grass
installed on my laptop, where I'm the only user. So I use the PERMANENT
mapset for each location, which seems to be ok.
However, I've got a growing list of locations that is becoming hard to
manage. Each dataset that I download becomes its own location, and then
these locations start to get mixed up as I import layers from one
location to the other, or create new locations to reproject the original
I also deal with a lot of point location data, which gets imported into
a lat-long location, then exported out to various other locations. Which
introduces a new set of transformations to keep track of.
It's all getting to be a bit confusing. I suspect more experienced users
must have developed useful guidelines for managing their own datasets? I
hope it's not off-topic to solicit your suggestions here?
Thanks for your time!
