Post subject:  How do you stack the paper when printing?

I am confused a bit concerning what I might call "paper management" during the process of printing.  Do you take a new sheet out of the "cooked" pile, print it, and then put it back where you pulled it from, while taking out a new and unprinted sheet at the same time?  Do you have a separate pile for the printed as opposed to the unprinted sheets?  Do you intersperse blank, moistened sheets between the printed sheets, or do you stack them one on top of the other?  And I guess all of these considerations are compounded when you repeat the process for sucessive colors or do any "overprinting" or printing of one color over another.

I keep two paper stacks - one directly in front of me, holding the paper waiting to be printed, and one to my right side, holding the stack of sheets that have already been printed with this colour. The motion is always the same - from the pile in front ... to the pile on the side.

The sheets are stacked right on top of each other (heads and tails), and between each couple of dozen sheets, there is a bundle of newsprint. Nothing in this process changes with respect to successive colours - the routine is the same right from the start of the process to the end of it.
