Practical Household Gadget: The DaysAgo Elapsed Time Counter

Updated on May 29, 2008

When did I open that? You'll never have to wonder just how long that container has been sitting open in your refrigerator when you use a digital DaysAgo food freshness counter on your open bottles and jars. The DaysAgo gadget is battery operated and simply tracks elapsed time. You can use DaysAgo to keep track of how many days have passed since containers have been opened, chores have been completed, plants have been watered, pills have been taken, etc.

About the DaysAgo Freshness Counter

The gadget comes with both magnetic and suction holders, making it easy to attach a DaysAgo counter to just about any type of container or surface in your home or office. The magnetic attachment works perfectly for metallic jar lids, and the suction holder is great for holding the gadget tight to glass and other smooth surfaces. DaysAgo also comes with bands in two different sizes so you can attach the device to large or unusually shaped containers.

At one time or the other, you have probably wondered whether or not something in your refrigerator is safe for consumption. You've probably also found yourself wondering if it's time to water the plants, give your pets their monthly medications, etc. With DaysAgo, you won't have to guess about these types of things. Instead, you'll just need to attach a timer to items you need to keep track of. When you turn the timer on, it'll start counting elapsed time. The next time you look at the item in question, you'll know exactly how long it's been.

    Looks like a great idea - But I can't see that I'd need it to keep track of how long ago I opened a bottle of wine =D
