Subject: Remembering meaning of "multiples" and "factors"

Does anyone have a mnemonic device, story, or any other trick to keep factor and multiple straight? I've talked with other teachers who say their students also often get them backwards. I'm usually pretty good at coming up with little stories to help, but I am drawing a blank on this one!
