The peg mnemonic system can be used to remember long numbers. Since each digit has its own pegword, you simply need to link the pegwords together to remember each subsequent digit. Here are the rhyming pegwords for each digit.

ZeroHero
OneBun
TwoShoe
ThreeTree
FourDoor
FiveHive
SixSticks
SevenHeaven
EightGate
NineWine
TenHen


For example, let's say that your credit card number is 5831-7489-2467-0000 (not a real credit card number!). You could memorize this by linking the words: hive-gate-tree-bun-heaven-door....

Use this technique to remember account numbers, PINs, phone numbers, social security numbers, etc. You could even memorize the digits of pi (3.14159265...) using this method.
