Use that CD-RW drive for something useful!
One additional concern is that the cheap CD-Rs may not last as long as the more expensive ones. What I plan to do is use a more expensive CD-R occasionally so that even if the cheap ones fail or only last a year I will still have a backup. Each brand of CD-R uses different chemical compounds for the CD for patent reasons so I would recommend that you use different brands for your backup. That way if one brand degrades faster than it should you will still have your backups.
