Skeleton Files for Simple Lists


I was listening to “How to improve your memory in just 30 days” by Ron White and I found something I thought was worth sharing.

He calls it “The Skeleton Files” and is basically using your body parts as Loci for storing information.

I had heard about this but had never thought to try it out. What I really liked about his idea was that he chose the body parts by name using the Major System, and so It would also be a numbered peg list which is also very useful.

I made a small diagram with the parts, names and numbers.

Hope this helps others as well.


Hey, thanks for sharing this. I’ll give it a try :slight_smile:


Thanks for cooking up this diagram! That was super awesome of you. I hadn’t caught that the skeleton “loci” correspond exactly with the major system, that definitely makes it easier.
