Do not check out the project's directory from the repository.
Instead, check out the project's trunk, and also any branches you're
working on. Do this for each project you're working on. To update,
switch into each working copy and update. If this is tedious, you can
write a script which does it for you, though, really, why would you
need to update all working copies at once? Just update the ones
you're going to work on today.

To make a branch or a tag, use URLs to the repository; do not make
the branch or tag by copying things in your local working copy. Not
that there would be anything wrong with doing so, but doing so would
require you to have checked out the project's root directory, which
as you're discovering is inefficient and not really the best way to
do it.
