can someone explain how to remember the difference between accept and except?

i can mix these up sometimes

This is a fun way to look at it. Accept: The first “c” is a person grabbing the other “c”, in which they’re taking it and ACCEPTING it. Except: The “x” is a person crossing their arms saying “I’d take the “c” EXCEPT I’m not sure if I totally want it.”
