DaysAgo Digital Timer

I kill house plants, there I said it! My husband is the gardener of the family and he makes me paranoid about over watering, so because I can never remember when I watered the plants last, I just usually don't. Once I see the leaves turning yellow I take a pretty good educated guess that it's probably time they had a little drink. Aren't I clever? Usually by then, of course, it's a little too late and they end up taking a trip to the D.U.M.P!

A fairly new product has come to my rescue! DaysAgo is the first and only digital day counter that removes the guesswork of knowing how many days ago a food container was open or in my case how many days ago I watered the plants! By "counting days up," the DaysAgo can track food products that spoil quickly, including baby food, sauces, salsas or just about anything else you need to keep track of.

Honestly, until the Company contacted me, I had never heard of DaysAgo so when they offered to send me one to try I was thrilled. Anything that allows me to free up brain space has got to be a good thing. Now that I've had the opportunity to try it out, I am happy to report I love it!

I particularly love that it is a simple gadget that is re-usable, versatile and easy to use. It also attaches to a variety of surfaces with a magnetic or suction backing. I just keep mine on the fridge and after I water the plants, it's quick and easy to simply re-set it and start again.

This device was inspired by the need to track freshness of baby food which lasts for only 2-3 days, but upon its invention, the list of uses expanded quickly to include pasta sauce, salsa, soup broth, leftovers, applesauce, etc... I know for myself how many jars of baby food I ended up having to throw out because I couldn't remember when I opened it!

All and all, this is a terrific product for a pretty good price. I found them online at Solutions for $9.95 for a pack of two.

Now I have no more excuses for killing my house plants, unless of course you count laziness!

My Review Policy

I love finding ways to save time, money and most importantly, my sanity! I am always on a quest to find new organizing products and containers that will do just that, not only for me, but for others as well. I am more than happy to review these types of products and share my reviews of the ones I love. I will be honest in giving my genuine opinion although I typically will not provide reviews on the products that don't end up meeting my criteria or I'm just not happy with.

Product reviews that I do as a result of a Company sending me their product will be done on this site only, separate from my main blog. I will, however, provide a link back to this site from my other.

Vendors may contact me to request a product review by emailing me at the address located on my sidebar.

About Me

Hello! I'm Laura, the organizing junkie!

I’m a Canadian WAHM to three kids (girl 10, boys 8 and 2) who give me plenty of organizing material each and every day. Only recently did I turn my dream of becoming a Professional Organizer into a reality. I’m very excited about this next stage of my life!

What I love most about organizing is the “high” I get from it so I am always looking for my next “fix”. Crumbs on the floor wouldn’t bother me but a pile of papers on the table would drive me crazy!!

I love great organizing products of all sorts and here on this blog is where you'll find the reviews of many of the ones I adore.

For more organizing excitement you can also find me at my main blog I'm an Organizing Junkie!
