    Find a chalkboard (or I guess it works with whatever material you are used to, paper...) and write it up: "Complements add up to 90, Supplements add up to 180". Write it up about 100 times. ;) Or, just go for writing it a couple times. It may be helpful for memorizing it to write it out a couple times, as it is for other things in Math like writing equations out every time you use them.

    \(\color{red}{\text S}\text{upplementary}\) angles form a \(\color{red}{\text S}\text{traight line}\) \(\color{blue}{\text C}\text{omplementary}\) angles form a \(\color{blue}{\text C}\text{orner}\)

    If you supplement your income, you can just keep straight on doing what you are doing.

    This is how I remember them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4Ux98InKvg 55 seconds in.. "I prefer compliments, so I complement at an angle, of 90 degrees". Maths+90's hip hop!

    Complementary angles remind me of the song. And once you hear the song a few times, you can hear that line in your head "I complement at an angle, of ninety degreeeeeees" and you'll never forget complementary angles!

    @shantelll I remember the difference this way: The letter "C" comes before the letter "S" in the English alphabet. The number 90 comes before the number 180 on the number line. Therefore, "C" for complementary angles is paired with 90, and "S" for supplementary angles is paired with 180.
