How to Help out Those Diabetics in Need
Diabetics cannot escape the need to keep checking how well they are doing. They always have their test kits handy for that. As they are looking to establish a suitable test strip brand for their use, they will buy from different suppliers, and settle for one over the rest. Those will most likely be discarded since they are not needed. The operating lifespan for these strips tends to be quite short.

Some previous condition, such as pregnancy, might have been your reason to need the strips. These are some of the reasons for the extra strips someone might have. These boxes are needed more elsewhere. You may also make money from them.
