Wiring ideas and fuse boxes?

Hey, I am no wiring expert, but I would like to do a few mods and I want to do it up right, and i'm looking for your suggestions/input.

I currently have bed lights wired up in the small cubbys in the bed, but I was thinking about adding a light bar with lights that point backwards for backing up purposes, catfishing, tailgating, etc. and also possibly add some interior lights (center console, floor lights). I want to be able to control the lights in the drivers seat, being able to turn each accessory on and off as i please and plan on hooking them up on individual switches. Also in the future, I plan on upgrading my stereo system w/ sub(s) and an amp.

It seems like my battery terminals will be getting filled up quickly, so is there another way to keep it cleaned up and consolidate everything into a fuse box or something else?? I'd rather not get a second battery. What should I do?!

Oh you can buy a secondary fuse box then run a heavy feed to that. Then fuses then off to the devices.Then from there off to the switches then to ground. There is a Basic Wiring thread here. Lots of tips. Should read that first.
