Wiring circuit labeling

So, for some reason, I have been really motivated to do all the little things (and some big) for the AS that I have considered "someday" jobs. Here's the most recent. (All that was necessary was a 12 pack, a label maker, and two college football games on the AS TV)

I now have every circuit and wire labeled. I figure, sooner or later, it will save me a lot of time on the road diagnosing and fixing problems. Plus, you just get to know your AS better, since wiring seems to be one of those inconsistent things from one unit to another.
For what it's worth department.

A quick and easy way to label wires is little flat plastic bread bag sealer thingys. Maybe someday I will actually do it.

I am pretty sure one of our members makes tags for this purpose. I'm don't think he will post that fact, so I will. I stumpled across this while searching for cable labels a while back.

No, not a twist tie. Flat plastic about 1/2" square with a hole in the center and a small slot that will slip over a wire. There is enough room to put a number or letter on it. I would take a pic but I am too lazy.

You see them most often on bread loaves. They are called Kwik Loks.

Good move. I went through the B190 one time and figured out everything that was on every circuit, and I kept a list, but I didn't mark it the way you did. I also did it to my house one time. The lists helped a LOT when something went wrong (rare, but it occasionally happens). For the house, I actually sketched a diagram showing every outlet, light, and fan and what circuit they were on, and I have that diagram posted near the circuit panel.
