Diabetes is a condition which requires constant monitoring. Keep in mind that when it comes to screening your blood sugar people who are diabetic are advised to ensure that they buy testing kits. When you make the purchase someone usually receives supplies of variety of test strip brands and after someone has chosen the ones they want to use the other boxes are abandoned and left to gather dust. The short shelf life of test strips often means that someone has to deal with a growing collection of boxes that are of no use and they must be gotten rid of somehow. This usually means that you have to throw away perfectly good boxers of diabetic test strips in the garbage and it can be quite unfortunate because the strips are usually expensive. Most people who suffer from diabetes cannot be able to afford buying the strips because they are too expensive and they mostly have a fixed income, or they lack an insurance which can cover for this supply. There are many organizations that provide them the necessary supply, and you can participate in this effort to help. If you have an extra box of test strips you can sell them for cash instead of throwing them away.
Most people buy extra test strips because they usually do not want to be in a situation whereby they don’t have any, and that is why they buy many as they are very important. You will find that many people buy extra boxes all the time when they make a purchase if you find yourself having so many boxes it is important for you to think about reselling them. If you own a couple of boxes that you cannot me you should think about selling them because it is a legal process. Most of the strips are usually marked mail order or not for resale, you need not to worry about that as you can still sell them. When selling the strips you should know that there are some brands which are in more demand than others and you should not sell strips which have expired. Most organizations prefer buying strips which are in good condition and have a minimum of six months to their expiration.
