Expired To Be

Products that you own, such as medicines, pantry and refrigerated items, etc., typically come with expiration dates.

Expired To Be provides notification reminders for your expiring items at a time of your choosing.

Simply add an item (1), expiration date (2), and how much 'lead time' you would like (3).

Your browser will show a # count for items as they come due for renewal.

App Availability

Overview

Be reminded of little one-offs you don't think about too often; like butter, medicine, or the cleaning supplies under your sink.

The primary notification for when an item expires is an orange number count that will show in the extension's icon (in the Chrome toolbar). This expiration count will clear when the expired item is either deactivated, or updated with a new valid reminder date.

Primary features:

  • Display listing of all expiration items:
    • Expired items will be distinct, as will any item you are currently 'editing'.
    • Items that have alarms set will show an 'orange or blue sun' near its 'active' status.
    • You can edit, delete, and de/activate items individually.
  • Expiration items are stored in the browser's own storage. There are no connections to any 3rd party services.
  • You can export all of your existing expiration items.
  • You can import over 500 items (the app will walk through saving each item from the list you provide).
  • Uses: Icon Badge Text, Data Storage, and Chrome.Storage.Sync.

Bugs and Enhancements

If you have a bug or feature request, please feel free to submit a new issue on GitHub. Feel free to submit Pull Requests for consideration as well.

A list of longer term considerations:

  • Add 'last export' date and remind about backing up (you really don't want to lose your list!)
    • Store: Date, number of items at that time, number of active items at that time, ...
    • Preference Option: Enable Check [yes|no] _ How often: [1-dy|2-dy|3-dy|5-dy|1-wk (default)|2-wk|3-wk|4-wk]
    • Preference Option: Can/should show reminder alert on the toolbar icon? Different color background (with a 0 if no expires---just to show for the export reminder (usually it won't show if there are none)).
  • Allow categorizing (or labeling)
  • Get code prepped for a mobile version of the app (as part of an even bigger suite).
