I use a pretty pokka dotted makeup bag that I got at Target. I hate those ugly, UGLY, black zipper pouches with hold down thingys. I am going to say UGLY one more time, so you know what I am talking about. I have toted a bag around for many years and ugly is not acceptable to me.
My biggest challange was finding the right size. It has to be long enough for both of my insulin pens to fit, and wide enough to pile in needles, meter, alcohol swabs, lancing device. Then I am happy. Happy, Happy, Happy.
I want to share a weird satisfaction with you. And I know you will know what I am talking about. I get a weird satisfaction out of cleaning my bag out. About every 1-2 days I remove achohol wrappers, used strips, used needles, trash, empty insulin pens, those stupid little pink or blue thingys, tissues, then dump it all into my safe container (a giant milk jug).
Then I refill the bag again with all of these items and then I am done for a couple of days. Are you weird like me?
