Re: [IP] Sharps container alternative

 I have a small sharps container that I purchased at Rite Aid for travel...I
think I'm one of the few that change my lancet every time I do a BG check...so I
have plenty of sharps to dispose of...

But what happens when the natural substance breaks down and leaves little 
hard-to-see sharp objects for somebody to get stuck?

I'm in the middle of planning a trip in May and came up with the bright idea 
that I could use an old prescription pill bottle for the sharps I will 
generate on the trip - the introducer needles from infusion sets and the 
needles you use to suck insulin into the reservoir.

Jan and ?
