Pictorial association is a good way to improve one's memory. For example, if you wanted to remember all the plays by Shakespeare beginning with T (not including those starting with the word "The") you could imagine a boat on Twelfth Night in a Tempest with Timon of Athens, Titus Andronicus and Troilus and Cressida sitting opposite Two Gentlemen of Verona, with the shrieking of the Taming of the Shrew in the background. I have been trying to master this recently but was mortified yesterday on my return from the supermarket when I realised that I'd forgotten my handbag and had left it in the trolley in the car park. I drove back from Winchester to Romsey and, crestfallen, approached the Welcome Desk at Waitrose. Joy of joy, somebody had handed it in, contents intact!

Glad you got the bag back intact, WW. I try to make words out of mental lists, eg, "PAST" would mean I have to get pasta, apples, sugar and tea!
