Think of what you want to carry, where and when you want it available. Then figure out how to store it that way.
It's tempting to try to outfit yourself to the max, buying all the gear, before you know what you really want all this stuff to do. Don't fall for it. Think it through from the utility end first.
Also, before you buy deck bags, read the reviews, take a look at some of them live, and consider the size and shape and how they attach.
Do you need it to be truly waterproof? Do you need to compartmentalize things? Do you need it with to extend the external capacity to hold things beyond what your deck bungees do? That kind of thinking will save you wasting a lot of money.
