I'm doing ok with this kind of thing. My strategy is to try to upgrade my gear every 5 levels or so. And I start making the "next set of gear/mods/weapons" at least 3 levels in advance, because those 3 levels go very fast when you're trying to accomplish all the things you mention (gathering mats, learning blue recipes through RE, hoping for the purple mats from critical mission results, etc).

I find that it's pretty easy to keep my characters in blue items, this way. Getting them into purple items is a lot harder, though. So I don't generally try for purples unless I already know the plan (from a previous alt) or if someone else (friend/guildmate) can also use the item and is willing to help me gather mats.
