RTM prevents leaky batteries in my daughter's toys

chris.daida says:
My daughter has a lot of alkaline battery-operated toys, and she's lost more than I care to remember because of batteries that had begun to leak. The toys are easy to neglect because they all have battery doors secured by a screw making them a hassle to check.

Now, whenever I install a set of batteries in anything, especially my daughter's toys, I make a priority 1 task in RTM with a 1-month reminder to check the batteries. When the task reminder goes off, I know that it's been a month since the batteries were installed, and they need to be checked ASAP.

Thanks to RTM, we've stopped having to throw out any battery-operated gadgets.

Or you could buy better quality batteries, checking every month seems like a hassle. Good ones should last for years.
