@MeasurementBlues: You could simply create some shortcuts to open the files and programs you want or copy the paths from the shortcuts and paste them into a batch file.
But that would just open the files -- not place everything where I want stuff on the screens (sad face) -- on the other hand I agree it would be a step along the way -- but I'm going to try the script stuff recommendd in an earlier comment as soon as I get a free moment.
I'm a creature of habit -- to a degree. However, I've never habituated myself to any particular GUI desktop, so I'm pretty good at switching between various versions of Windows (I like 2000, dislike NT, loathe Vista, dislike 7, won't touch 8), Macintosh, and Linux desktops. Maybe when I have the inclination to write my own desktop I'll have something worth forming a habit around :-)
Now individual programs and programming languages are another story. I'm definitely a creature of habit there.

The difference is that mine is a single monitor, while yours is made of 3 (but, I guess the principle remains the same if you can address any particular location using a pixel co-ordinate).
My js script for the above pic is as below. I just double click this file (or, right click and Open With -> Microsoft Windows-based Script Host) and the programs automatically start in the required locations. (The 'Run and Place' utility rap.exe is in the same path as cluer.exe in the paths mentioned below)
