Create 'smart' burn folders System
Burn folders have been around since Tiger. But I only recently realized that you can place smart folders inside them, to make smart burn folders.

For example, let's say you want to regularly burn all the documents related to a particular work project to disk. To do so, start by creating a regular burn folder in the Finder Then, create a smart folder with whatever criteria you want (for example: search for the name of one of your projects in Contents, click on the plus-sign (+) button to add another search term and set Kind to documents. Then save your smart folder inside the burn folder.

Now, when you open the burn folder and click the Burn button, the system will find every document on your machine (including any you've added recently) that contain the name of your project and burn them all to disk.
