Use colored paper to warn you when printer paper runs low

Paper stack with color coding

I put colorful paper at the bottom of the printer’s paper tray so I get a visible warning before the printer runs out of paper. As soon as my prints turn pink, I know to add more paper to the printer. If you have even one sheet of colorful paper to put in your printer, this trick will serve you well.

Staples with color coding

The same idea works well for staples, too (I’ve found colored staples at The Dollar Tree that cost $1 and include a color-coordinated stapler), as well as any other office supply available in multiple colors.
