Every June, Stampin’ Up retires items to make room for new things. Keep yourself organized by marking all your supplies when they retire. Personally, I use sticky dots found at the office store. My *retired color* is *yellow*. So, everything that has a yellow dot is retired!
When I prepare for a class and pull out merchandise to use, I can tell immediately whether or not an item, stamp set, punch, or ink pad is current or not. I tend to keep my favorites so, this is helpful.
I do pull out all retired stamp sets and keep them in a separated area. My punches are kept all together on a wall.
This is a great visual tool to speed up preparing for classes.
What color marks your retired items?
