Somewhere in the “honey-do” lists created each weekend, I have a few recurring maintenance tasks. My monthly items get done the first weekend of a new month, the semi-annual ones when the clocks change. The quarterly and every-other-weekend ones have been hit-or-miss, until I grabbed these Days Ago digital counters from the kitchen.
Designed to keep track of the age of your leftovers, mine sit above my workbench and tell me how long it’s been since I’ve checked the termite traps and cleaned the pool filter. The display increments daily (up to 99 days, sufficient for quarterly checks), and are reset by simply pushing the button on the face.
They cost $10/pair, in an assortment of “stunning” colors, with either magnetic or suction cup attachments. Some Amazon reviewers report the suction cups don’t suck well — I’ve used the magnetic ones in the garage for quite a while without trouble.
