Not switching mid-session is a good idea but I do also want to use up the chemicals. I'm going to work on designing a setup for each film base.

One thing that I'm having fun with lately is my Holga and printing contact sheets as the finished print. So no I don't group densities I just take it as it comes.

To go even further, examine your negatives and your guide prints (if you have any) and group negatives with similar lighting conditions together when you print. I find that it helps to examine my negative before I put it in the enlarger and I do look at it while I'm focussing it as well, but I think that this helps more with judging densities than color balance.
