James' pro-tips:
Some things we didn't talk about, but I'd like to mention:

Extra pro-tip:  "git fetch -p".  It stands for prune. Will remove tracking refs from your clone that no longer exist in the remote but it will NOT remove any of your local branches.  It's a useful shortcut for cleaning up your clone so you can GC to reclaim space.
