    1. Leave your keys on top of whatever you don't want to forget, like your lunch.

    2. If there's a task or a date you really want to remember, write yourself a note about it on your phone. Screenshot the note, and then set the screenshot as your phone's lock screen.

    3. Can't remember if you locked the door on your way out of the house? Keep a rubber band on your wrist.

    7. Leave some empty trash bags at the bottom of your trash can.

    8. Take a photo of the inside of your fridge before you go grocery shopping.

    9. Start typing email recipients beginning with their last name.

    10. If your hands are full when you're trying to get into your car, temporarily place extra items on the HOOD of the car — not the roof.

    11. If you're near-sighted and can't find your glasses, use your camera phone to see.

    12. If you forget someone's name, ask for their email address.
