Memorize This Shopping List
Let’s start with this 10 item list (read it once and go to your local shop):
- 2 apples
- 1 toothpaste
- 1 toilet paper
- 1 fish
- 1 chocolate
- 1 pack of Orbit chewing gum
- 1 pair of socks
- 1 loaf of bread
- 2 onions
- 1 carrot
How many items from this list did you bring? Not much I guess. Well, OK it’s just 10 items on the list, probably you memorized a lot, but that is not the case. I am using only 10 item list for explanatory purposes.
So how to remember this list in 100% accuracy (even in the same order) by reading it only once?
The Magic Memory Technique
The answer is – by vividly visualizing words. You just have to create a little but very vivid and very emotional crazy story from these words. Ok I’ll show you how..
This stupid crazy story could go like this:
2 apples felt from the tree on a pack of toothpaste,it erupted and stained everything around. A fish came with a toilet paper and cleaned the place. After cleaning the place it decided to have a rest and eat some chocolate. After eating it’s chocolate the fish remembered that she has to chew some Orbit for teeth health. There was a boy passing by who saw the fish and caught it with his sock. The boy brought the fish home and ate it with a loaf of bread. The fish turned out to be poisonous, so the boys eyes felt out of his eyelids into his hands and transformed into 2 onions. He put a carrot near these 2 onions, and it formed a male organ, but he was blind and couldn’t see that he has formed something bad from these vegetables.

It is advised to use all kind of sexual references and even some violent things because they are emotionally very strong.
Some Final Thoughts
Well, you might say, why should I try to remember a shopping list, when I can take a little leaflet with the list written on it? The wonderful thing is that you can use this technique everywhere! It is especially useful when preparing for your exams. I used this technique many times and it proved to be the most effective memory technique of all which I still use.
