Like "But you are still using multiple test strips right?....and those are generally the more expensive. When I was diagnosed, I was only allowed to test twice per day (thru a low income clinic). I wanted to test more frequently so what I did was join a "freecycle" group in my area. I was then able to get free test strips and lancets for my meter when a posting came up and I responded. I was able to post my own unneeded items for others who could use them. That might be an option for you."
