Is there a way to remember the ordering of the planets in our solar system?

If you struggle to remember the ordering of the planets that constitute our solar system here is my very easy method of remembering all the planets and their correct order.

My (Mercury) Very (Venus) Easy (Earth) Method (Mars) Just (Jupiter) Speeds (Saturn) Up (Uranus) Nothing (Neptune).

These are also called mnemonics and help you remember things better in a logical way.

Here is another one:

Matilda visits every day, just stays until noon.

In our phrases the first letter of each word is the first letter in the name of the planet. Also just repeating the list of the planets 9 times each day for 3 consecutive days helps. 🙂
