It's What Inside That Counts!

This is actually a post that I started months ago. From my cell. Before I got my laptop up and running, so it was impossible to actually post it.

Then  this awesome project came along.Fabulous Reyna posted hers today, following in the path of the always amazing Hallie and Wendy who VLOGed  on the subject  as  well.

Oh duh, what  is it? Well how would YOU like to help a newly diagnosed family?

I wish when Justice was  first diagnosed there was a D bag that came with a list of everything that  we should carry with us at all time. In case of an emergency, you need  more than just insulin, a syringe and juice!

I learned on my own. Luckily for me I am a bit OCD, and I a pack rat.  But in the beginning I would never have dreamed of needing all this stuff!

And then what about what  to put it IN. Bags. Coolers. Bookbags. OY!

The options are limited. Space was never enough. Style lacked. So I had to come up with something that worked.

But someone out there now is trying to take all our advice and yes expertise on the subject and create something better!

IA Collaborative wants to know whats in your D kit. What do you carry with you? Are you happy with your bag? What do you want that you don't have?

They WANT OUR HELP!! So, I sent in the pics below, and let them know what I want for a D bag.

Wont you join in?

Kit A is our main bag that carries it ALL.  Kit B is an old meter case that houses the smaller items, in Kit A.

I know pretty awesome.

WOW. You gals carry a lot with you. I am seriously thinking that something is wrong with us. We carry the basics. I'll have to get a post together about it.
Love the stuff you carry and the portable scale! The bag rocks too and how you have labelled it.
