I have no need for loads of cards. I have a 16gb in the camera and a 4gb as a spare so they never get labelled (but im not doing more then one shoots in any day). I also only shoot in RAW
Once I get to the computer I use adobe Bridge to get the images off the camera. Adobe Bridge allowes me to create a folder (and subfolder if required) for the images to which I label it so ill know instantly whats in there. Sometimes I add the date if its an event/shoot that will happen again or a trip, ie Rome > Vatican City. Spain > 20110525. Halloween 2012. Bridge also converts all the CR2 files to DNG for me as there imported.
Now using bridge ill delete all the unusable photos and move all the "snaps" (snaps that don't need PP) she will want to keep into a folder labelled For Hayley (her name) then convert to med quality JPEG and give them to her, deleting them after, along with the RAW files.
Now its normally off to Lightroom. I don't create a catalog as Lightroom seems to do this for me when I import the new folder.
While doing the PP ill flag the image as either a snap or a keeper and all keepers get a star rating.
Once the PP is done ill move and convert all the flagged as snaps again giving to her and deleting. Any keeper under 3 stars gets converted to high quality JPEG and the RAW/PSD deleted. All 3 stars and above ill keep the RAW and PSD if there is one. They then get backed up to external HDD and online.
