Saving values of Color Mixer

I’m not sure how everyone else is doing it, but I’m creating a variable with a default color.
I’m using the variable in my surface.SetColors()
In my color Mixer, I get that value, then assign it to the original variable, it updates, and it’s great.
Yet it would be kinda worthless if you had to change the color to what you want each time you rejoin the server.
How would you save the value of the ColorMixer?

Either use a console variable ( http://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Category:ConVar ) or save it to a file (http://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Category:file) or the sql database ( using the cookie library http://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Category:cookie or the sql library http://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Category:sql ).
