Since today’s smartphones have the ability to store thousands of contacts, it’s pretty easy to just add a number to your address book and never worry about remembering it again.But what if you don’t have your phone or digital address book handy? Here’s a very simple way to memorize the most important numbers in your address book.

We found this tip fromĀ Reddit user StabYourFacebook, via Lifehacker:

Delete important people in your life from your phones address book. Just save their phone number instead. I’m not saying everyone in your contacts, just a few people that you may ever need to reach in an emergency. I replaced their name with just their number instead and in a little over a week I know my whole immediate family as well as my close friends numbers just from seeing them pop up whenever they call/text instead of just seeing a name like “mum” or “Eric” pop up every time.
