Memory Pegs

Memory Pegs is a good thing to use with the memory palace. Pegs are similar to a memory palace but instead you use numbers for example:

1-candle    
2-swan
3-love heat/ lips
4- a sail boat
5- Captains Hook
6- Golf sticks
7- Cliff
8- snowman
9- ballon
10- Dinner plate

This skill isn't hard to develop all you have to do is think of something that relates to the number, like if you need to remember a list of groceries, just match them with the numbers like sail boat and a packet of mnm's, imagine a small sail boat coming from an island far away and they are delivering little mnm's from a big mnm shaped factory and the person shipping it is a oompa loompa who hates chocolate. See its not too hard relating things to numbers are the easy bit but trying to make a very strange image is the hard bit because if you can't think of something strange enough then it wont be as effective.

Hope you enjoy, Ray~
