I'm using multibit and i have electrum on my phone. I never keep BTC on a website, once i decide i need coins on a website I send them, use them and withdraw them immediately.

I store my coins discretely so nobody knows how the fuck I'm storing my coins so they can attempt to steal them.

On a QT Wallet on a Windows 7 VMWare that gets fired up only when I need to access them. VMWare is locked down and used for nothing else other than the wallets. It stores all my coins from LTC / BTC to TIPS.

This is then snapshotted and also backed up completely (snapshots as well) on my NAS and secure offsite once a month (just in case)

My wallet is only ever open when I need it and normally for no more than 1 minute on the network.

Does "online" mean a website? Or does "offline" mean cold storage?

I use Armory as hot storage, so I checked "other".

Coinbase, LocalBitcoins, Bitcoin-QT, and USB Flash Drive/External Hard Drive

Buy them from Coinbase/Local, then transfer immediately to Bitcoin-QT, then back them up to external.
