Monday Memories: Stick Me!

I have a ‘bad‘ habit. I like to collect diabetes accessories.

What do I mean? Well, I have all the colors of the One Touch UltraMini. I have a pretty beaded bracelet for my medical ID. I have a few really cool ‘diabetes awareness’ shirts. And I’m always looking for something new. Like tonight, I bought the new Mary Tyler Moore book

I can trace back to when my addiction started. In October of 2007, I wrote about a new website I had found which sells super cute meter cases. Here’s what I wrote back then:

***************************************************************************************

Did the cool lime or pink UltraMini meters strike your fancy? Then I found the perfect website for you.

Stick Me Designs has just launched and has the cutest (and manly demin for the gentlemen) cases to store your meter in. There are plenty of elastic bands, pockets, and zippers for all your needs.

Check it out!

The case I bought ‘back then’ (pink sherbet) is now part of the retired collection, but there are plenty of other designs currently available.

I use this case especially at the gym because I can fit my meter, strips, and lancet along with my keys, license, gym card, and still have room for a tube of glucose tablets. And the strap means it hangs from the handles of the elliptical! Great, right?!

I am trying to put a post together about all the rest of my favorite diabetes products and some really fun things that happened to me last week, but I need to get my butt in gear and take/upload those pictures first.

    That is a good bad habit to have in my opinion. 🙂

    Not only am I an addict, but as my post today shows, I can’t throw any of this stuff away either!

    Those cases look very cool. One is definitely going on my wish list.

    Totally guilty. I have the beginning of a diabetes graveyard in my supplies closet (and I’ve been at this less than two years).

    I also have a blue case from Stick me designs. It’s pretty & blue and it HOLDS EVERYTHING!
