I was curious about what type of bags people use to carry around their insulin,and syringes and testing supplies in? I just use a cosmetic bag to carry mine in, but it isn't very fashionable, and is kind of bulky. What do you all use???
PenPLus by Medicool i use this for my insulin during the warm months..
I carry my insulin pens in one of the open top pockets inside my purse. I keep the pen needles in a little change purse. Once used, I remove it carefully and put it back in, bring them all home and put them into my sharps container that day. Then, I put in more pen needles for the next day, check my pens to see if I need a new one for the next day and off I go.
I am looking forward to getting my first insulin pump in March 2012, if not sometime in February, and not having to take multiple shots everyday.
I bought a little Vera Bradley hanging cosmetics organizer (you can see one just like mine at http://tinyurl.com/7jm7yb3) which I love, love, love. The pockets are clear plastic so I can always see contents, and I have one pocket for alcohol swabs, one for lancets and pen needles, pockets for test strips, meter, and lancing device, and I use the large main pocket for my insulin pen and a travel sharps collector. The bag also has a little tuck-away metal hook that is a lifesaver if I'm having to slip away to the ladies' room to test or inject. During the weekdays, I just tuck the bag into my work tote bag, and on weekends I carry it with my purse - it looks like a cute little clutch.
