Memory Trick

After our Thanksgiving feast we had about a pound of BBQ Salmon left. Deb wasn't going to eat it and so I took it home with me. I packed it in ice and put it in my cooler and headed home. I was making an overnight stop at BFD's and when I brought the salmon in, I said, "Help me remember this in the morning." She said, "That's easy, just put your car keys in the refrigerator with the salmon." She told me she uses this trick with anything she needs to remember - just puts her keys with whatever it is.

Sure enough, the next morning the salmon came home with me.

That is a fantastic idea!

I used to do that when I worked in an office years ago and sometimes made a quick trip to the supermarket on my lunch hour, then put the perishables in the office fridge. Even a note on my keys didn't work -- I had to actually put my keys in the fridge. My keychain in an oversize safety pin, so I sometimes attach it to whatever I'm afraid I'll forget.

When I am recharging my phone, and thus, it is not where I usually leave it, I put my keys by it so I won't forget to grab it when I go to work. At work, in the winter, if I want to remember something, I put it in or right next to my coat.
At home I sometimes put things next to, on, under my keys and then, because I'm thinking about where I'm going, I move whatever it is, grab my keys and leave without the items I needed.

Maybe if you put all the items in the refrigertor with your keys, you'd remember them because it would be strange to have them in the refrigerator and would remind you to take them. :-)

I am afraid I might get to work, realize I have the refrigerator in my car and have to take it back home so Karen could have breakfast.
