How to memorise a 20 item (and upto 1000 item) grocery list. March 2015

someone asked on Quora: What can I learn/know right now in 10 minutes that will be useful for the rest of my life?

I knew about other techniques like creating a story where each words is like a double linked list of event or using each words as obstacles in a mental path. But this one seems way more useful and practical. But contrary to the other techniques, you have to memorize a few things before being able to use it:
