stocking stuffer: digital day counters

digitaldays
If you’re anything like me, you have no idea how long that Chinese food has been lurking in the back of the refrigerator. I always have the best of intentions to write down on the top of the container when it was exactly that I ordered delivery, but suddenly it’s innumerable days later and I’m trying to gauge the ratio of likelihood of food poisoning to how hungry I am. These little digital counters from DaysAgo, $7.99 at The Container Store, make a great stocking stuffer and will save me from many upset tummies! They’re also useful outside the refrigerator — they can be used to count down from when the plants need watering or air filters need to be replaced. — Katie D.

Now this is a great idea. I wish I had had one last night when I pulled some marinara sauce out of the fridge and couldn’t remember exactly how long it was in there… I hate it anyway.

Seriously, this is made for pasta sauce! I could use this, my refrigerator currently has a graveyard of pasta jars that I’m too scared to eat but can’t throw away. Fun stocking stuffer – thanks!
