Depending on your threat model, these suggestions may be completely
You want the files encrypted but but don't want to keep entering a
passphrase to decrypt them.
One way to achieve this is to encrypt them to an OpenPGP key that has
an empty passphrase.
Another suggestion is to store the files on an encrypted disk instead
of using GnuPG. This would require disk encryption software, of which
one example is TrueCrypt (see <http://www.truecrypt.org/>).
