I think the most easiest way could be to pack it in my .sbclrc file. But I want to store them in their own package. If have found a lot of information about defpackage, require, adsf and quicklisp but at the moment I am not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I do not want to create a complex system definition. I just want to tell sbcl to load a file at startup (or it's compiled version) and have all the definitions available in their own namespace. Maybe I will later have different kinds of helper functions for list manipulation, macro programming, general shortcuts, etc., and I want a sound basis to prevent any conflict to third party functions and macros, etc.

If your stuff fits in a single file, your .sbclrc could be:
If your stuff is many files, make it into an ASDF system, and use:
(asdf:load-system :my-stuff :verbose nil)
Store your stuff in one of the pre-configured paths, or add your thing
to the ASDF configuration. See the ASDF manual if you have problems
