Packing Made Easier with Colored Tape
1. If you have kid rooms to pack, use a different color tape for each child. Even the littlest family members will be able to spot their belongings easily.
2. Use a bright red or yellow tape to box up your fragile items so that they are easily distinguishable to everyone that is handling them.
3. Organize your holiday decorations at-a-glance in the garage or attic by packing them up in boxes sealed with a different color.
Colored packing or masking tape is available at a variety of places. I found a fair selection at the local Wal-Mart, but at Amazon.com (and other retailers) I was able to find at least eight different colors. If you are using the tape to actually seal a box, be sure you purchase tape that will stay adhered to the cardboard surface, and is wide enough to provide a strong seal.
