We used a very small address label and typed the case number on each one so it was uniform and easy to read. We put it on each paper at the top right... We used a pc program to do this. That way, if for any reason the documents were separated they would be able to be put back into the case file easily.

Some do... some don't.. we did and it just gave us a peace of mind that all our docs would remain with the file.

Our advisor did the same in pen. The more professional you look and act they more they will respect your case. I like the label idea.

My wife and I went so far as writing notes on each of our 63 pictures to end result they even when my wife asked if they want to see pictures they said no.

My case is unusual though I have basically been in china 4 years and taken my wife to Europe and the Caribbean for work for both of us and we have a baby so I am unsure if they just hustled us through because we have a million good things on our side or if it was because we were organized.

Good luck! My wife had her interview on the 9th and ems has already received her visa package!
