Maybe you can put them in her next box. I enjoy sharing stickers, and am happy to give them to Kate especially. :-)
I got Post It's a while back, also...maybe the beginning of last year? They are handy, but you have to think about looking at them...sigh.
I do have something old/new. When we are on the small generator, and want to use a small burner, like you use I believe, we have to turn off the 'fridge or else, when it kicks on, it draws down the power and something else goes off.
I've said for a long time that we need to have something on the 'fridge to remind us when it's off, so that it goes right back on when we're done.
It kinda', sorta' worked, but wasn't what we wanted. We needed something brighter, something more permanent than a paper, etc.
Well, for Christmas the kids got me a good sized magnet that says: It's great being a Mimi. And, there's red around it. Hooray!
So, when we turn off the 'fridge, we stick it on the front, top of the refrigerator...the freezer door actually. We can see it even from the living room.
Then, when we turn the 'fridge back on, we move the magnet to the side of the 'fridge. This way, if it's on the front, we know that it's off and needs to go back on. No more using our memories for something so important.
After all, we keep track of the critters eating, 2ce a day pills for 2 people, etc. etc. We use our memories enough, thanks! With the refrigerator, forgetting even once could mean ruined food, or thawed frozen items, so we want to be very sure.
I'm glad that your system is working, too!
