I realize that I'm far from the smartest guy hanging around this forum, so I know that someone has probably already considered this. But for some of the newer guys, I thought I'd share something that I did that makes the grinding process pretty easy.
I found a lidded container big enough to store my grinder and some accessories, but I use that container to mix my ground meat and sausage spices, and also as a washtub for all of the parts that need cleaning. Since it is used as the washtub, it gets clean along with everything else. After everything is dry, it all gets put back up until next time, and everything is right where I need it.
(Sorry, I didn't take any pics of the mixing process):
