Avoid plugin overload

I'm working on migrating marketcoding.com into my new wordpress theme at marketcoding.tedpenner.com. The new theme is one called customizr.  

Last time I started developing, I couldn't remember which plugin did what, much less have enough information about where I was in the process to pick up where I left off.

Is there anything that can make plugin organization easier?

Use a notebook.  Write down what plugins you install and what they do.  Consult notebook when issues arise. If a plugin isn't being used, delete it.
