nett & gross

How I remember the difference:

If you have a can of, say, pears, the gross weight is the pears, plus can. But if you were to take them out of the can, and place them in a net, which is virtually weightless, that's the nett weight. 

When it comes to money, just as the pears in the tin are heavier than the pears in the net, so your gross income is bigger than your nett income.
