At home, how do you organize your diabetes supplies?

Poll dates: May 9 - 16, 2004

If you're like many CWD readers, you probably have a diabetes carrying case that holds a day or two of diabetes supplies for when you're out and about. But at home, you may have a different way to organize your collection of diabetes supplies.

Plastic containers are very popular (22% of readers). They are inexpensive, come in a variety of sizes, and have covers to help reduce the risk of a major spill. A plastic case can also hold much more stuff than a typical diabetes carrying case. Plastic containers are also useful for holding diabetes supplies at school or work.

Carrying cases are the next most popular (16%) and offer the benefit of having being transportable outside the home. While there are carrying cases that hold a lot of supplies, they tend to be large and are not as convenient to carry when you're out at an amusement park or the zoo, for example. Families often have a couple of carrying cases and use the one that best meets their needs for that day.

If your diabetes supplies need a bit more organization, see our page of Carrying Cases for ideas.
