I have many cake decorator tips and sometimes even 2 or 3 of the SAME tip because I use them that often! It is VERY HARD TO SEE the numbers imprinted on each tip so,when I get a new tip I label it with my labelmaker from Brother. It saves time when trying to locate a tip and it can make it through the dishwasher in a special bag for tips [although I hand wash them ,too! I use the dishwasher to sterilize it even more!]. If the label does fade, I use a permanent marker to relabel it.
Additional tips of the same number I label as back-up tip #2, 3 or whatever number it is.

For Cake Decorators! Write tip#s INSIDE Your Tool Caddy!
If you do cake decorating,then most likely you have a tool caddy "box" for organizing and in some cases [like if you were taking or teaching a cake decorating class] transporting your cake decorating equipment. Well,I have taken all the Wilton classes from Course 1 to Course 4 ,ending with Fondant & Gumpaste and I STILL DON'T REMEMBER which TIP NUMBER is for making shells,stars,writing,etc. So, tonight when I was decorating another cake,I got the idea to put the MOST -FREQUENTLY USED TIP...
...NUMBERS on the INSIDE of my tool caddy! That way ,when I flip it UP to see my tools,the TIP NUMBER LIST IS AVAILABLE and I don't have to go searching in my cake decorating books to find WHICH TIP is for which desired effect~star,heart,writing or my favorite~~the shell!
When you say you need to do something, anything, DO IT IMMEDIATELY! Whether it's doing the dishes, getting that last bit of homework done, getting through that yoga video, ANYTHING! This will keep you busy all day, leaving no time for thought about food cravings, and it will keep you MOVING! When have we ever gotten done what we say we needed to? Well now is your chance! You could sit there making to-do lists all day, or you can choose to do it right now. Go for it! =D (cont.)
