It’s a fairly simple concept, but not many people take the time to label their tapes (and/or CDs, DVDs, memory cards, slides, films, photographs, etc).

It only takes a moment and it makes things so much easier down the road when you are trying to figure out what’s on the tape or when it happened. Do it right after you take it out of the camera.

And just don’t write “Christmas” or “Kids” on the tape. Include the date. Or at least the year. If you want to get fancy, include the location, people involved and even the camera it was shot on.

You will thank yourself in the future.
