Color coding

  • I code every work day item with a color. Red for Monday, Yellow for Tuesday, Green for Wednesday, Blue for Thursday, and Purple for Friday. Weekends are the fun colors, (think black with silver gel pens) or whatever. (You can pick your own, but, as providence would have it, those are very common colors at your local Office Depot/Staples). At any rate, I do this to know when things are due, when I have to commonly do them, or if I have to leave someone else work for a few days, they can just look for a color. It's great, because on Macs, you can choose your folder's highlighted color as well, and once it's integrated, life is so much easier! When I write notes, and if someone asks about it, I can look at the color, know that I wrote it on that day, and can remember it easier. It's great, too, because you can make a to-do list and put it on the days that those items are due. Utterly expansive. :) hacking reality is wonderful
  • I sort the clothes in my closet by color and it saves a lot of time trying to find the item that I want. --Krchi
  • Pick up a different colored plastic keyring for every key in your keychain. Saves you frustration at the door. --Hafif 23:03, 8 Apr 2005 (EDT).
  • Buy several pairs of socks that are alike and all the same color. That way, when you open your sock drawer, when you are in a hurry, you are bound to quickly find at least one pair that match. You can also color code members of your household. One member has only blue socks, one has all white. --Cda 12:18, 11 April 2006 (EDT)
    • My mom used to color code the socks that belonged to my sister and I. She'd take some colored thread and a needle and stitch a few passes along the toe seam, making a small spot of color. Each of us had our own color. This way, no matter what color the sock is, you can tell who owns it. Cordelya 15:53, 11 July 2006 (EDT)
  • Buy towels, hand towels, washclothes and sheets in different colors for each member of a household. When you see a blue towel on the floor you will know who it belongs to and who needs to wash it. --Cda 12:18, 11 April 2006 (EDT)
