Kanban in miniature

After days of not having windshield washer fluid, I decided to employ a trick from lean manufacturing. I made a little kanban (visual aid) pull tag with a Post-It flag and stuck it on my key fob. I'll have to find a spot in the car to stash it until the next time the road salt exhausts my supply. Perhaps behind the sun visor...

    This reminds me of my mother's trick for never leaving the lights on on the car. She has a clothespin which lives clipped onto the headlights switch. When she turns on the headlights, she clips the pin to her car keys. When she turns off the ignition, there is the clip, so she turns off the lights and clips it back on the switch.

    Do you know, I think this is such a good idea that the Kanban keyring could be manufactured and sold. Ingenius but simple! All it needs is some Italian/Japanese styling (or iPodisation) like those Crocs shoes that they are desperately trying to persuade us to buy here in Europe.
    ...and think of the money that could be made from selling the refill packs of little pieces of card to stick in it!
