Cheap DM/Player tips

Instead of counters or beads to keep track of hit points, I just use a pair of d10s... One for the tens place, and one for the ones place, just like when you roll for a d%. The number showing is my current hit point total. If I take subdual, I pull out a second, different colored pair, and start counting up on those.

I'll echo the "note cards are good" suggestions.

In conjuction with the note cards, small post-it notes are also quite useful... Especially for tagging note cards, minis or counters with modifers or conditions. "The orcs with the pink tags are asleep," or writing "+1 Atk & vs. Fear" on a post-it to tag someone who's been blessed.
