  • Sue Malin United Kingdom Never understood the use of the memory triggers, to me it's seems so much easier to remember the items than setting up a complicated system that means I need to remember so many more things. If I want to get milk I think of milk picturing a bun being dipped into a glass of milk seems more difficult for me than remembering milk.
