Could adding some color in your life help make you more organized and productive? Test it out and see!
Add some color:
If color helps jog your memory, then try color-coding your files. Differentiate the broad categories in your filing storage, but don’t make it too complicated.

Use no more than four to six colors…you don’t want to confuse yourself.
