saving .deb to cd for future installs

As some of you are aware, I am re-doing my debian install. Once I have it up and running, how I like, or to a point I am happy with and can use to start over to save hours of downloading, how do I save all the packages I have used to CD so that I don't have to download them again?

Downloaded packages are saved in /var/cache/apt/archive. Move them to a temp directory and create a Packages.gz file. Then you can burn the directory to a CD and use add the cd-rom to your source.list.
