Memory Problem

Post by Jack on Fri Mar 20, 2009 4:19 pm

Hello everyone,

I am currently striving to remember the exact and specific location of my book, but I simply can't remember.
I tend to repeatedly forget about my belongings... and I was just wondering if you guys have any advice or suitable solutions? How are you able to achieve this? Have any tips? What are your strategies?

I tried to retrace my steps
I tried to remember the general area
I tried to ask my family members


Thanks,
Jack

The best way to find something you've lost is to go out and buy a new one. The moment you get home and walk in the door, it will jump out and be like "Hey, I'm right here! You just wasted your money. What a moron..." LOL.

But a more helpful way is to try to envision yourself where you last read it, then go to that place and look in all the 'safe' out of the way nooks and crannies that you might have stuck it up in when the next thing that caused you to put it down occurred. My husband always sets things up slightly above his eye-level where he (and I) can't see it later on when we're looking. I have to get a stool and go around looking anywhere that might be out of our vision. (I know that's a lot like retracing your steps...but hopefully it added some insight?)
