When I come across something totally innovative and brilliant, I always feel torn. On one hand, it usually means that I’m going to benefit in some way from the brilliance – so that makes me all kinds of happy. I also love to see the human mind at its best, so finding something fresh and new means that a bright mind somewhere was getting its groove on. That, in and of itself, is exciting.
Yet even with all of these positive vibes bouncing around, a tiny little dumbfounded voice inside of me asks, “Why didn’t I think of that?!?!”
She was dumbfounded again recently. But you’re going to love this.
The DAYS AGO digital counter is proof that some minds are, possibly, beyond brilliant.
DAYS AGO counters are sold in assorted colors with two to a pack. They’re available in 3 “attachment” styles:
3. Band (Coming Soon)
DAYS AGO takes the guesswork right out of a lot of headaches and problems we come across in our lives. Headaches such as….
- How many days ago did I make the bread starter?! Is it time to “feed” it yet??
- How many days ago did I buy that guacamole? If it turns green, I’m screwed!
- How many days ago did I give my dog her heart medicine?
- When DID I last water the fern from my dad?
It’s uses carry out of the kitchen, as well. If you have elderly loved ones that you want to call several days a week, a DAYS AGO near the phone will serve as a reminder as it lets you know how many days have passed since you last called.
I would LOVE to see DAYS AGO come up with a digital counter with a larger screen and larger numbers for elderly people. The uses for this generation would be limitless. They seem to be the sort of company that stays in step with the needs of everyone, so I fully expect that they’ll come out with a perfect “large print” version soon.
We get so terribly busy sometimes that it’s honestly hard to remember how many days have passed since we last did this or we last did that. And, if you’re like me, you’re tired of writing the information down on paper just to have the paper get lost!
DAYS AGO has even come out with a pink digital counter now, in honor of Breast Cancer Survivors. The co-inventor of the DAYS AGO (Kathleen Whitehurst) is an 8 year survivor of breast cancer, herself!

New Pink DaysAgo Introduced to Promote Breast Cancer Awareness
Pink DaysAgo, inspired by co-inventor Kathleen Whitehurst’s eighth anniversary as a breast cancer survivor, will be sold on the company’s Web site.
Saint Helena, CA, August 2007 – When it comes to breast cancer, early detection is the key to survival. No-one knows that better than Kathleen Whitehurst, co-inventor of the award-winning DaysAgo™ Digital Day Counter — and an eight-year breast cancer survivor.
Whitehurst’s company, double u products inc., is introducing a new pink DaysAgo counter as part of her commitment to helping women of all ages get into the habit of doing regular self breast exams. Details about the pink DaysAgo can be found on the company’s Web site, http://www.howmanydaysago.com.
“I feel very blessed to be a survivor of breast cancer, the most common cancer in women,” said Whitehurst, who underwent a mastectomy and chemotherapy to fight her disease. “I want women to remember every month to do their self exams, which are designed to find early tumors. When breast cancer is found early, and confined to the breast, the chances for survival are the greatest.”
The award-winning DaysAgo counts days to help families manage and organize anything in their lives that needs tracking. Originally designed by Whitehurst and her business partner, Debbie Stephens Stauffer, to help busy families keep track of food freshness in their refrigerators, the DaysAgo has become a lifestyle product that is used for everyday tasks ranging from taking medications to changing water filters.
Winner of the 2007 Good Housekeeping “Good Buy Award,” the DaysAgo affixes to containers, cabinets or mirrors through either a magnet for metal surfaces or a suction for others, and has a digital screen that counts up the days after the touch of a button.
The idea for the pink DaysAgo was conceived by Kathleen’s daughter, Jamie Whitehurst, who was inspired by her experience of helping her mom through her illness and walking side-by-side with her in the 3-Day Walk after she recovered.
“When I was diagnosed, my son and daughter were 22 and 20. Jamie was getting ready to graduate from college, and we were also in the middle of planning her wedding,” Whitehurst said. “That really kept me going — we managed to have such great laughs together. She made sure that my bald head, and missing eyebrows and lashes didn’t stop me from feeling like a million bucks on her wedding day.”
Jamie now works with her mom as vice president of double u products, inc.
October is breast cancer awareness month, and the pink DaysAgo is available for retail purchase as well as distribution at fundraising events for this important cause.
