    • How to use a Survival Kit: 

      1. Gather the Items listed in the kit
      2. Print out a cute listing of the contents so that the recipient knows what each item is for.
      3. Place the items in a baggie
      4. Print out the topper, fold it over the top of the baggie containing the survival kit contents and staple it shut

       Please note that Most of the survival kits listed have free printable toppers available to print here.

    • Diabetic Survival Kit

      Insulated kit for travel with diabetic supplies (has elastic to hold syringes, pocket for wipes, place for insulin bottles, and a small ice pack you store in freezer when not in use, as well as heavy insulation-- found it at Price Less Drug Store and other places


      Really nice high quality socks to protect feet of a diabetic, look for no seams even in toes area to chafe feet of diabetic


      nice creams for rubbing on feet with verse about caring for feet.


      mirror for inspecting parts of feet that are harder to see as we get older and less flexible


      nice box of Whitmans Sampler sugar free chocolate creams, yummy even to me a person who usually dislikes the flavor aftertaste of sugar substitute


      Sugar free things: breath mints, herbal tea, sugar free cookbook or recipe cards


      Subscription to a good magazine like Diabetic Self Care


      Exercise is usually recommended, along with weight loss where necessary, so perhaps a pair of jogging shoes, a pedometer, or a gift certificate for a consult with a sports coach or nutritionist to encourage new habits

        I wish someone would have given me one of these when I found out I have LADA. (Type 1 that appears in the 20's)

      Re: The Average Cost of Thanksgiving Dinner over the last 20 years

      Wow, I would've thought it was a lot more money than that considering all the different groceries that go into it! Of course, every family eats a little differently and many of them do the potluck...
