DaysAgo Digital Day Counters

I just came across these DaysAgo Digital Day Counters on the Container Store website, and I can already think of about a zillion uses for them. These are little battery-powered counters that you stick onto leftovers, or air filters, or plant containers, so that you'll always know how many days ago you cooked/cleaned/watered them. The product description implies that you can even use them in the freezer, although I'd be a little worried about them lasting in the cold. But no matter; I could use them for how many days ago I scrubbed the litter boxes, how many days ago my husband cleaned the air purifiers, and so on. They track up to 99 days.

Best of all, these would make great stocking stuffers for both men and women. Men might want to keep track of how many days ago they checked the oil in the car they're trying to keep going for a few more years (ain't that the truth in this economy?!). Or heck, if you're trying to give something up (for me, it's Coke), you can keep track of how many days since you had your last one! This might also be good for young men and women just out of the house, as they, um, experiment with eating their own cooking.

The Container Store website sells a package of two in assorted colors (which you cannot specify) for $7.99. If you're lucky enough to have a Container Store near you, you can just go and pick out the colors you want.

What: DaysAgo Digital Day Counters
Where: Container Store
How much (as of today's post): $7.99/package of two (plus shipping)
