Smile memory techniques

Can i suggest a new thread which containts a list of methods employed by individuals to aid their memory. Individuals would then be able to select from the list that individuals employ that would suit their lifestyles and condition.

the ideas should be in list form ONLY to not exhaust people.

Here are a few which i use just to get this thread going,i hope somebody finds some of it useful and can add to the list ...........

1. camera phone[with a decent memory stick]excuse the pun
2.pocket diary,for ease of travel
3.larger home diary that contains more detail
4.stapler to attach receipts etc as these always have time and dates on them.
5. a small box to keep momento`s from events i.e. beer mat,menu from a bar etc.
