How do you store your photos?

Just after some ideas (free if possible) on storing digital photos so they are organised and easy to find? We just have lots of random folders and the canon creates a new one for each day.
Also, any ideas on storing printed photos (other than in an album) so they don't get ruined?

I mainly shoot landscapes and nature, so arrange by year and then a folder name of the shoot eg "Applecross sunrise 2nd Jan 2013". For kids photos, I organise by year and month.
Depending what software you have you can use metadata to tag shots, for example in Bridge you can add set "tags" to your shots, so either location or person for example.
I also backup to external harddrive and also onto DVD which I store at work.
I dont print many shots these days, but if you dont want them in an album, I just store in packets in a closed box to keep light and dust off them!

The printed photos I have to store are old (pre digital days) and I'm in the process of scanning them but want to store them somewhere afterwards and don't want to put all of them in an album.
Will look at the software to see if I can automatically tag shots.

I backup to 2 external drives and like Millie71, do the year and month and date within but tag the folder. If I need to find something quick, I find it in my Flickr to get the date and then know where to look
