NuGet package restore is a great feature as it means you no longer need to check in packages to source control. The only downside is that you need to have a internet connection to "restore" the packages. This post is going to help address that issue by showing how you can keep your downloaded NuGet packages in a central location to save space and provide offline access.

I like the idea of having a local repository to allow quick project setup without needing an internet connection. This also makes it easier for infrastructure types to keep package versions in check.
