    I was wondering how you guys use Finder Labels? Ever since I got my Mac 10 years ago, I was tinkering with the idea of using Finder Labels for … I don't know. Something possibly, but I have no idea for what exactly.
    I've been searching the Internet for any useful articles on how to use Finder Labels for work, free time, project management or anything, but nothing I found seemed usable.
    I know that it sounds cool to have a Smart Folder that searches for specific Labels from all over a hard disk and retrieves them, but I'm using a strict project folder structure. Why would it be good to use Labels that way?

    Any inspiration would be great. Anything, really.

    If you don't need them then don't use them. I've never had a use for them. It doesn't sound like you do either.

    This wasn't a question how I or other people also not use labels, I asked how others use them to get, maybe, an inspiration.
