Organizing Insulin Pump Supplies
We have most of the diabetes supplies in the pantry for easy access, like test strips, lancets, back up meters, syringes for back up, the glucagon. I’ve always stashed Z’s pump supplies in the kids’ bathroom closet because I was out of room in the pantry. We get five boxes of reservoirs and five boxes of infusion sets every few months.
They are sealed up nicely (with the world’s stickiest tape) and when Z or I go to open a new box? This happens every single time and it drives me freaking crazy.
When they dump out on the floor at six a.m. (before coffee) while I’m fumbling around with the box, it makes me extra happy.
This has made me crazy for awhile now, but I just kept forgetting to do something about it. Seriously, I would look at this and go “I really need to do something about these boxes” and forget until I looked at the box again. THREE DAYS LATER. FOR SIX MONTHS. I ran across the most perfect bins at Target on Sunday and they were on clearance for $2.78 a piece and my brain actually did me a solid and reminded me that they would probably be the perfect size for reservoirs and sets.
YOU GUYS. This makes me ridiculously happy.
The dimension of the baskets are six inches high by six inches wide by 12 inches long.
After all my hard work, Zoe said, “I wish the bins were pink” and I said, “I wish I weighed what I did before you were born” and she said, “Point taken”.
And yes, I just wrote all about how to put shit into bins, but only because I’m here to help. Don’t end up like me, living so heinously for six months, get these bins and save yourself.
