Collect, Collate, and Code

What strategies, tools, theories do you use to collect, collate, and code your digital data for your research projects?

I have a large collection of student artifacts including journal and blog posts as well as open-ended survey responses. I am paralyzed at the moment with indecision about how to collect this data and collate it into an usable form let alone code it to discover its secrets.

Come share your thoughts, ideas, experiences, and similar woes.
