I chose a different color for each child from birth. Then I always knew that the cup, toothbrush, sheets, towels, placemat, coats, other clothing etc were quickly identified by the colour (for clothing it was either part or wholly that colour, or tagged with the appropriate colour)
Also works great in day care settings or with individuals with disabilities, dementia and elderly, just choose their favourite colour and choose different shades for multiple favourites, ie. frosty pink, pale pink, rose pink, fuscia, pinky mauve, etc.

I have to say...I took to the floor last night and went through three piles of paper and who knows what. What a great feeling! Just do it. Stop looking at it and saying you'll get to it. You will fee so much better.
