My mum found thick tape in thier 3 colours and now we use it to label and mark everything, iPod/DS/portable DVD players and chargers, iPods (for quick refernce), books, pencils everything that needs identifying quickly.
The kids toothbrushes and towels are even colour coded, saves lots of arguements when I ask who left thier towel on the floor?!?!
The boys each have a display folder that has all of thier school reports and awards in it. Also colour coded.
I find that it keeps them organised, with less fighting over who's is what and it's easy to tell whose is whose.
The kids love the system and as soon as they get new things they ask me to mark it for them.
Do you have an organisational system for your house?
