Tips on keeping old projects updated when you're constantly improving your workflow, etc, on each new project?

I've been making Wordpress themes for about two years now, and because I'm still new to web development, I'm constantly improving file structure, workflow, functionality, etc.

This makes going back to work on old projects an absolute nightmare. Either you have to do things the old way, or go through and rewrite everything to match improvements you've made on new projects.

I'm wondering if anyone has any best practices or tips that might be helpful.

Thanks!
