Tape Tracker

Ever lost a charger or cord in while on the road? Luanna DeMay, program manager for Purdue-Kelley's MS-MBA program in Food and Agribusiness Management, recommends putting a small strip of brightly colored tape on power cords and chargers; the bright colors are easy to spot when you look over the room before check-out. Try the Scotch Expressions line of decorative masking tape, which has more than a dozen bright colors and patterns. Cost: $3 per roll. Officedepot.com
