Default French articles

How do you deal with French articles? I have to admit that the biggest problem for me was the recognition of the gender. I came up with a way to make it easier for me to remember - while I was learning the vocabulary, I marked masculine in blue and feminine in pink It really helped me to learn. I'm interested in your ideas.

In this case if you have good imagination, you can use it. Try to make some associations. It can be very silly, but it's even better. Once I've read the comment on forum where was written something like that: "imagine all feminine nouns are on fire while masculine nouns explode".
la table - imagine a table on fire le livre - an exploding book
I like it. It is really works. You can also try to invent your own associations if these do not suit you.

Or you can just try to remebmer the endings:
Masculine nouns generally end with the following: -p, -one, -k, -isme, -age, -ing, -et, -ou, -u, -x etc
Feminine nouns generally end with the following: -ance, -
