Pill Popping and Shopping… Round 2 (because failure is not an option)

I (and some of you) stand corrected.  The pill fob I listed as #2 in my initial pill popping post was a dud.  A cheap, sleek, fairly-feminine keychain, but an awful pill fob.  The lid slides off at the most inopportune times, spilling tiny white pills (in a variety of sizes) all over wherever I may be.  All-in-all the Stainless Steel Key Ring Pill Box was a $3.29 reminder that cheaper is often just that.  Cheaper.

So, to save Daniel and I further embarrassment (and money on wasted medicine),  I spent this evening revisiting my options, and ordered the momma-bear version of #4.

It’s a red  zippered pill case which includes seven vials that will fit in my pocket when I am at work or out to eat.  They come in a larger case that will keep track of my medication on lengthier trips.  I anticipate this will be the ideal, discreet solution and will prove worth the 1,000% increase in my initial investment.

In other news, I have a lot on my mind of late and I want to know your opinion on the subject.  Check back later this week to opine.

    As usual, nothing beats habit. =) When you get in the habit, you won’t be forgetting. Getting into the habit, though…. There’s the trick…

    When my fibro was at it’s worst, I had pills I had to take throughout the day, now I’m down to just AM & PM. I used to use a timer on my phone to remind me when to take my pills. Actually I still do use one for my bedtime pills. If I don’t, I won’t sleep. =)

    I also have the habit of filling tomorrows pill box when I take tonight’s pills. Since I am NOT a morning person, having my morning pills all ready the night before means that I won’t miss taking them.

    See what little habits help you stay on track. It’s usually the little things that make the biggest difference. If you can build up that habit of taking your pills when you need to, which container to buy won’t matter as much.

    BTW, the container I use I got at the Container Store in their travel supplies for less than $1. =)

    I have a cute version of #3. Be glad you didn’t get it. The frickin’ thing pops open in my purse all the time!

    I, too, abhor spilled pills in my purse, car, home, desk, etc. It’s a waste of money and a potential health risk for pets and children. Hopefully this new case will be a winner.
