A Resourceful Tip - Color Coded Keys

Have you seen those specialty keys that have a design or team logo on them? You can purchase a blank key and then have them cut to match one or more of your own keys.

The idea is that you won't have to search for a key on your key ring. You'll know the Mariner key is for the boat (get it? Mariner? Boat?) and be able to identify it easily.

You can also use a key wrap. There's no forgetting which is the house key when you use one of these:

Both of these options cost at least a little bit of cash, but I read about a free alternative in All You Magazine's June 2011 issue.

Why not paint a key with nail polish? It will adhere to the key easily and last a long time. It won't wear off like marker ink, for example, and it might save you a few valuable moments when you're trying to hurry a kid into the house for the potty or frantically trying to get into your car because you're going to be late for the pediatrician - again!
