Cent — Sent — Scent

Cent = in currency, a penny. One cent (1¢) = $0.01
“C” is the first letter of the word, and the symbol is a “C” with a vertical line through it, which helps us to remember which word to use.

Sent = arranged for someone or something to be taken away to another location

Scent = a smell or odour   

If you can try to remember these three variations in this order, it might help to remember the meaning of each one. 
1.) “C” comes before “S” in the alphabet
2.) “S” is next in the alphabet
3.) Last of the three is both “S” and “C” together
