In the Library, add those four (or the appropriate number for your system) folders to it. Then all of your supplies are rapidly reachable without the clutter of all the other My Documents folders. The files are still in My Docs, but the Library is a rapid "Virtual address."
I actually download first to a "Scrap Downloads" folder on the desktop. It has shortcuts to the My Docs folders listed above in it. The desktop folder reminds me to check to unzip, and then after opening files and organizing the contents to suit me, I can drag them straight to the shortcuts, which moves the files to the appropriate place. I also have a 0_Downloads folder inside Scrap Downloads. The Zip files go there after unzipping, until I KNOW I've backed things up. Then I delete those. The shortcuts are also a handy way to navigate to my scrapbooking supplies; just double-click the Scrap Downloads folder on the left edge of the desktop, then double-click the shortcut.
Here's a screenshot of what I'm describing.
Number of downloads: 20
To make a shortcut, right-click and select New, Shortcut. Browse to the desired target location and click next. Name the shortcut differently or use the default.
Hope this helps; let me know if you need more clarification.

I'd also like to pick your brain sometime about what to get when I buy a desktop, re memory, hardrives, etc. FAST PC's!
