Colour Coded Kids!!

I am very lucky that my boys all like different colours! It makes colour coding things much easier!!

Tate loves Red
Damon loves Blue and
Ethan loves Yellow

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?

There were four kids in my family growing up and we were colour coded! It works! :) :)

Great idea - we are pretty boring here, pink and blue at the moment!

My kids had colour-coded underwear and socks, it made sorting and folding much easier, especially through their middle years when they were all pretty much the same size.

This is SUCH a good idea. I might need to modify it for Hubby and I and our various projects and commitments.

My family did the same as Rebekah as above ... that I carried on that well-worked idea when we started a family over 30 years ago! :)

Oh, This makes sense... especially the socks and undies idea that River suggested. Always looking for a little bit more order in this (messy) full life!

Thanks, grace
