Well my desk is actually filled with boring office-like stuff like files, paper clips, lint roller, etc…
But my handy cabinet hosts my work emergency kit.
Awhile ago, I had a minor panic because I’d misplaced my lancet. It had sunk to the bottom of my purse as is common with most things that I misplace. But I had flashes of trying to poke my fingers with the thumbtacks in my bulletin board and decided that I should make sure my emergency work kit is complete. I of course asked Twitter for advice. Kerri at Six Until Me shared her post about work supplies with me.
I made a list of things to keep in my office. I carry a regular emergency kit in my purse at all times with my back up meter, back up insulin, an extra OmniPod and glucose tablets, so I’m typically prepared for anything when I’m out. Since I spend a lot of time at work, I need to be prepared there… and not just for diabetes.
Here’s what ended up in my cabinet:
- Juice boxes
- An extra OmniPod (that I have already had to use and replace again)
- A spare lancet
- Sugar-free cough drops
I’m in a great situation, where I work only a 15 minute drive from home so if I absolutely needed something, I could go get it.
Am I missing any emergency supplies that you recommend? What do you keep with you at work?
