|Re-purposing a tic-tac box for used test strips keeps (most of) them out of the bottom of the bag!|
It took us almost 10 years, but we finally realized there was a better choice. I invested all of about $10 in this cheerful little make-up case from Target, and now it's all together.
We were inspired by a friend who re-purposed a cute pencil case for her supplies. Why not keep these things we use so many times per day in something more fun than a black case?
We were also inspired by a greater need to keep all of these items in one place. It is increasingly common for my daughter to go places without me and my giant purse. She now does not need to rummage through the giant purse for the odds and ends of diabetes care, transferring them to a giant tote bag of her own. They are now all together in this handy bag for her to grab and go. We even chose this design over the flowery one so my husband could carry it more proudly for the walk to the library or around the park.
A great improvement in the fun and functionality of daily diabetes drudgery. For only $10!
