In public, anyway, I have placed my used test strips in the sugar packets on the table and then hid those in my bag or rolled up in my napkin. Rarely, do you get lucky enough to see a trash nearby to discard them. I have used an older vial of test strips to place the used ones in, but this really takes up too much space in my already packed diabetes case. The only time I really bring an empty vial of test strips with me now is if I have a reservoir of insulin I will need to place in my pump soon and want to bring it out the door with me. That fits perfectly in a test strip vial.
Recently, I stumbled across a great idea for storing used test strips. I found that the Listerine Pocket Pack Breath Strips containers are the perfect size for storing a handful of used test strips. The containers fit nicely in your pocket or meter case since they are about the size of a quarter. I attached a file to show you how easily it works. Anyone have any other ideas that can work for this?
