You definitely do not want them where people can step on them later, if you blow in insulation that will cover them.
Also to add, I would just forgive the boxes all together, and just pull two lengths of Romex down, so that you have a continuous circuit along the loop, using the boxes where the switches & outlets for the junction points. Figure two romex, six wires, you should be find in the count for fill.
I did that with my last Kitchen circuit, since I am not planning on making any changes with it later on down the road. It uses a little more Romex, but in the long run, it is a whole lot cleaner, and you do not have to go hunting around in insulation, or looking up in a basement joist space when working on the circuit.
