"Not a huge problem - you will need an automated file management software, and I recommend the free app Filesort here.

Filesort

What you do is this

Use Filesort to establish rules based on date of the files to sort them into the desired folders.
Set Filesort to start monitoring the folder you intend to dump all the contents of the zip files into.
Set Filesort to process the files according to the rules every say 2 minutes.
Start extracting all the contents of the zip files into the monitored folder, and Filesort will do the rest.

Let us know if it works aye mate?"
