DaysAgo - Keep Track Of Dates The Techie Way


Hello, my name is geeksugar and I have a messy refrigerator. Yes, I'm plenty clean and do my best to keep things sanitary, but I'm a busy gal and can't always remember when I picked up that block of brie or OJ carton. Enter DaysAgo a digital day counter that lets you know how many days ago you opened, closed, stored, watered or changed a household or kitchen item.

The gadget was created in 2005 when two friends Debbie Stephens Stauffer and Kathleen Whitehurst were at Debbie’s home in Northern California working on ideas for a new business venture. During a break, Debbie asked Kathleen to feed her younger son. Kathleen opened the fridge and saw several half-full baby food jars. She also saw a warning on the labels that the food should not be kept more than 3 days after opening. “So how do you know how long they’ve been open?” she asked. The two women pulled together a team of family, friends and experts…and that led to the creation of the DaysAgo, a digital day counter that attaches to food containers and other things that need smart tracking.
