You can enhance your mageto by using extensions. I have experience by using all listened below extension during 3 years of runing our website:
* Advanced Admin Products Manager
This extension extend product grid with other any products attributes. It allow you to select any products attributes (such as name, prices, sku, categories etc.) which will appear as editable columns in product grid, it mean, that extension convert it into editable grid as Excel and you are able to edit all data right in the products grid - including any prices (price, cost, msrp, special price etc. and allow add/deduct prices by fixed value or by percentage), categories ids (add/remove/change) it mean assign/unassign products to any categories. After edit it allow you perform bulk update in one click. Additionally it allow you to sorting/filter product grid by any products attributes including categories ids, so you can detect which products assign to which categories or detect not assigned products and update it right it the product grid.
If cost is core metter to purchase extension, here is lower cost extensions which allow solve your task, but it is not so agile as Advanced Admin Products Manager:
* Mass Products Categories Updater
The idea is same as for Advaned Admin Products Manager, but it allow you only update assignments of products to categories. It add categories ids column into product grid and allow you edit data right in the product grid and perform bulk update in one click.
* Mass Prices Updater
The idea is same as for Advaned Admin Products Manager, but it allow you only update price, cost, msrp, special prices of products. It add product prices as columns into product grid and allow you edit prices right in the product grid and perform bulk update in one click. Additionally it allow you update prices by additing/deducting fixed value or adding/deducting value in percentage to price column.
