Sometimes when I have a lot of stitches to keep track of I will keep a pen and paper handy and I will do them in batches of 10. Bind off 10 stitches and write down 10 on the paper. Then bind off another 10 and write 20 on the paper. Bind off 10 more and write down 30...and so on until you reach the number that you need.
This is just a trick that I do.
