I don't attempt to remember them, but keep a master list of those email addresses - and for the true "throwaway" ones which I expect to be used just once, precisely what date I used it for and for what. Right now there's just under 1100 addresses in that file ... though I'd guess two or three hundred are no longer in regular use.

Many of those addresses also feature in filtering rules at one or other of the two main mail providers I use, and I have exported copies of the Sieve rules that implement them (from Fastmail, and someone-else's Roundcube system) as well.
