Re: [IP] BG Variance.- a way to save test strips from spoiling

Responding to: A difference of 92 is not +/- 20% .

I've had the same problem and it was probably due to what I've seen
discussed here this week: leaving the top off the strips. I have been
terrible about that.  I have now rigged my strip container so that I can not
set it down without it falling over. I tapped a wadded up ball of tape to
the bottom of the container. Now the only way for me to put the container
down without strips falling out is to close it and place it upside down on
the lid.  I think the manufacturer should change the container so that the
bottom is round. It forces you to close the container or play pick up
