    Knowing my fridge, I would be in the market for a "months ago" version. I don't actaully own any of these gizmos, but I really like the idea--attach one of them to something in your fridge with either a suction cup or magnet, and it counts how many days have gone by since you last interacted with the food. Hit the button to reset it. I'd be interested to hear about people's experiences with these guys. I can see this as the type of thing people end up loving.

    I recently read about this item in the NYTimes/Home & Garden section - it's a new reminder tool for your food items - the Digital Day Counter! It has many applications but the most obvious is to place it on storage containers and enter your freshness date on the digital counter. That means no more post-it notes, pens & scotch tape on that next food item you're about to store away in the fridge or pantry. Try it on flour, rice, pasta or whatever you'd like to keep track of.

    This little device digitally counts the days that have passed. Use it for mold-prevention for your leftovers, or even to track how long it's been since you watered your plants.

    If you've ever had to wade through the jars of baby food, salsa, dried fish paste (that's for you mom and dad) and don't want to do the inspect and sniff test then you'll like this little invention. It's a button that you can stick on your jars that'll track how many "days ago" you opened it. If you're thinking, why not just use a sharpie pen, well, if you haven't already, are you really going to? Besides this is a lot cuter and you can stick it on the plants to let you know when they were last watered. Or anything else that states, "good for [insert # of days here] after opening. It's like a reverse time bomb - the clock part that is, the food being the bomb part.

    How COOL is this? The DaysAgo Digital Day Counter attaches to your open jars of baby food or containers and counts the days for you so you can remember which one is good and which one needs to be thrown out. Love that!

    Another good gadget (Phil will be happy), especially for first time parents. Digital readers you can set and attach to baby food jars, so you never have to guess if food is old or not. No good to waste anything now-a-days, you know?

    I can't believe it took someone this long to come up with such a convenient and handy device. Wondering how long ago you watered your plants or fed your fish? How about those eggs in the fridge? When did you get them? That turkey sandwich- did I put that in last week? Or the week before? A digital counter that counts every 24 hours from the time you set it. The timer attaches with a magnetic or suction backing and counts up to 99 days. It’s easy to use: Remove the clear plastic tab on the side of the timer to engage the battery inside the unit. Press and hold the button for five seconds to begin counting elapsed days. DaysAgo will always be “on” and a flashing light on the LCD screen will indicate that it is running. Cleans with a damp cloth; do not submerge in water or place in dishwasher. Comes with a battery, which is replaceable. Magnetic and Suction are sold separately; two pieces to a package. Assorted colors.Choose Magnetic or Suction.

    These cute little gadgets would make the perfect gift for a new mom or college student. Simply pop one on a container of left overs or a potted plant it will track its freshness or the number of days since you last watered it. Great idea, huh?

    this is the COOLEST. i usually write on jar tops, but it ends up getting smeared or wiped off completely. what a great way to keep track of things - up to 99 days! check out this website.. there are so many uses for these little guys. a plus: they are magnetic.

    Keep track of how old your food is so you can make space in your refrigerator! I used to always have the problem of wondering how long it's been and if the food had gone bad. Now I don't have to!

    The use-by date is a completely antiquated notion, IMO. Just because it's pickled and ok to "use-by 2010" doesn't mean after a month of being open the goods are still viable. Honestly, do we really know how many times we've opened the fridge, released the cool air subsequently forcing it to power up and cool down again? If it's contents could only speak! With that in mind (and we have a teenager at home, mind you) I bought these in both the magnetic and suction cup versions to cover a few of the lesser used items and now I know exactly how long the crushed garlic has been in there and when it's really time to let it go!

    this timer can be placed onto any item you know is perishable. The large digital face gives you an indication if those left overs from that Chinese restaurant can still be served to your guests.

    This is an absolute must in any kitchen. There have been one too many times in the kitchen were I underestimated a previously open container in the refrigerator to find mold. It not only ruined my appetite but left me with vivid nightmares. Each digital timer attaches via magnet or suction cup and counts the days the can has been open. Sold in a set of two.

    Genius idea. Checked the cost and it would be expensive to load up the fridge with these.

    I could really use something like this. I'm always on the go, sometimes randomly away from my house for days at a time (I swear I'm not a crackhead...this is just how it is). Consequently, from time to time I have some real suspect food in my fridge. I'm pretty much rolling the dice when I go into the fridge sometimes. It would be nice to know if the leftovers are safe.

    Really interesting way to keep track of the freshness of your foods. Just attach this gadget to your food product and it tells you how many days ago you purchased it. No more wondering whether things in the refrigerator are no longer safe for consumption. This helps with everything from pasta sauce, eggs, baby food, and anything else you may want to keep track of.

    I can never remember how long food has been in the fridge and always throw it out just in case - I'm sure I've thrown away tons of still-good food and wasted my money left and right. No more! With this gadget I'll know exactly how long that enchilada has been waiting for me.

    Get these bad boys so you will be able to remember how long your Thanksgiving Leftovers have been in the fridge. (saves you from having to do all that arithmetic in your head!)

    This thing is genius. I'm ALWAYS forgetting to water the plants and when I remember, I never know when was the last time I watered them or how much to give. I'd pop one of these things on the planter and make life so much simpler for myself...
