[IP] insulin questions

I completely fill my resevoir, which last 5 days. I change my site every 3 
days.  When its time to put in a new site I insert it straight out of the 
package without attaching to the resevoir or pump, take the tubing off and 
save it.  I attach the tubing of the resevoir that is still attached to the 
pump.  I fill the canula as I would with a new site.  This allows me to use 
all the insulin without having to mix old and new.  I'm sure I also save 
some insulin by not filling the tubing as often. When my resevoir is empty, 
I fill a new one. Then I attach the tubing I had saved.  I go through the 
full new resevoir process. I just attach it to the site that was already 
started.  I don't use as many resevoirs that way either. I have a little 
calender in with my supplies where I record which day I change resevoir, 
site and sensor.  It works pretty slick.
