Books, books, books. We seem to be over run with books at times. I had put groups of books on certain shelves in order to make finding them easier. However it seems that I was the only one who could remember where a book was supposed to go after it was read. Oy. My system was not complicated. All library books on one shelf, all small board books on another, and the girls' books on two others. I also had a shelf devoted to my books, and how-to books. Anyways it was pretty obvious to me where each book went, but not so obvious to any one else :-) So I had to take matters into my own hands. I decided to put a strip of colored paper on the spine of each book. That way all the 'red' books go on one shelf, all the 'orange' books on the next, etc. Problem solved! For the most part ;-) The baby hasn't picked up on this system...ha, ha!! Oh well, in time he will. Hey, maybe it can double as teaching him his colors! Killing two birds with one stone.
Above you can see the green stips of paper that I taped on to the bottom of the spines. I really love this system!! Now no one, except that baby, has to ask me where a book goes! Nor can they get away with leaving it out because...."I don't know where it goes."
