There are lots of blogs that have little counters that tell you how many days there are til Spring Training.
I use q-tips.
2 a day, in fact.
I do this thing where I take how many days until Spring Training, multiply it by two q-tips, and put them in this metal q-tip holder thingy we got at Target, and then use two a day.
Amazingly, this handy device does the count-down automatically as you use the q-tips!
If you wanted to start this today in fact, you'd take the 72 days until, times two is 144 q-tips, put em in a holder thing and start using 2 a day.
You can modify it to your own bathroom habits, like if you use four a day or two a week or whatever.
It's simple, but you must be diligent.
Now I admit, once the q-tip counter-downer is started, you won't get an exact count as much as a "feel" for how many days are left until it's pretty close.
Unless, you actually counted them.
But I like the lo-techiness of it, and it's got an added bonus as well: if you've got a Cub Buddy with ears that are...not so clean, it's a pretty awesome Holiday gift.
