My rule was always to use ser for things that are permanent, or time, and estar for place, or things that are temporary. Maybe I am missing something, but I don't notice many exceptions. Sometimes when I am talking to somebody, I notice my mistakes when they reply to what I say, especially pronunciation. But I don't notice that I make many mistakes with ser and estar.

The websites below are helpful, I think.
