Color Coding Fun!
One of my favorite organizing tools is color coding my files. I am a very visual person, and it helps me to see the colors that hold meaning to me.
Color coding your files on a Mac is super easy, simply right click on the file or folder and select the label color you want to use! That’s it.
Here’s my system. I mostly use Green, Yellow and Nothing for my kits (my CU has a more complex system, and I have one for designs in progress too but we don’t need to get into that). Here is how I code my kits and templates. Maybe something this simple would work for you or maybe something else would work better!
Green – I purchased the kit and it’s been used.
Blue - I purchased the kit and it needs to be used
Yellow - I’ve used the kit to scrap a layout
No Color – Means it was free, a gift or a CT kit and it hasn’t been used.
and here’s my system at work.
Boop has shared this program
you can get for your PC that does similar things. She has tested it, I have not. If you have questions you can leave them here and we will get her to try and answer them for you!
Happy Color Coding!
