I like the idea of color-coding, it really works well if that's how a person thinks (visually/color). The only potential downfall is that the system can become difficult to maintain if you aren't organized enough to keep all the colored folders readily available and continue to follow the system.

Follow through is a big issue. Our February issue of Short Cuts will actually feature an article about how to keep up the organization once you figure out a system that works for you.

We have an article that discusses using color to organize in case you are interested: http://www.smead.com/Director.asp?NodeID=1317.
It has been shown that color is an incredibly efficient way to organize (we've done a little research on the topic )
