Do you buy solid fabrics for your stash?
If so, I highly recommend you use a permanent marker—like a Micron pen—and mark the selvage with BOTH the manufacturer and Color/Color #. Then ALWAYS cut from the opposite end of the fabric, leaving the marking in place.
Use your phone and take a picture of the bolt ends to quickly capture this information when purchasing fabric at a shop.
Speaking from experience, it's much too easy to grab the wrong solid, only to realize partway into the project that you've used either the wrong color or worse yet, used two different, though close in color fabrics, and you see it only AFTER you've made 25 blocks.
