**Cutting board note**
Cutting boards with marked measurements are great. Color coding measurements helps even more by making measuring more accurate, and cutting down on time. Instead of counting inches and/or aligning your chalk lines by number, you can align them by color. It’s easy to miss-measure by an inch, if you’re not careful, but coloring your measurement lines really makes accuracy much easier.
