I would have several spare meters, 1 at home, one in your handbag (or purse, wherever you live!), 1 in the car and 1 at work or at your parents house. I have often gone out without a meter but know that where I am going, there is always one available nearby.
Or, invest in a diabetic handbag (purse). I have just come home to the UK from San Francisco and was fortunate enough that my sister paid for an Adorn Handbag - I have the bigger one so that I can carry water and snacks in one bag. It is excellent. It has a section in one side for all your diabetes kits which is even better because it is inside another wallet so if you want to swap handbags you simply take the wallet out and pop it into the next handbag!
