Diabetics need always to keep checking on their condition. This calls for them to always have their test kits nearby. 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 tend to go to waste. These test strips have short shelf lives. This has resulted in a lot of wastage when you think of how many diabetics there are in this world. You cannot keep them if you do not need them.
These strips also happen to be quite expensive. There is a large population of people with diabetes who struggle to make ends meet. They struggle to get enough for their use. That is the main reasons why there are some organizations that have taken the initiative to supply them with cheap alternatives. They will present an offer to those how to have plenty of intact test strips to sell them to them, and avoid having to throw them away.
Diabetics tend to stock more of the strips than they need, just in case they are in short supply. Over time, they might find that they do not need all that. There are those who are supplied plenty regularly. The need for so many strips also tend to go down with time. You may also have changed the brand you are using. You could also have needed the strips but only for a while, such as during pregnancy, which is now over. 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.
There is nothing legal preventing you from selling the strips, as long as they belong to you. There are no regulations against a purchase either. You can only sell those that belong to you. No matter the labeling, such as not for resale, you can still sell them. You only have to do it on a local arrangement. You can only leave out those boxes that have been damaged, opened or tampered with in some way. You also cannot sell those that already expired.
You need to sell your extra strips to those organizations that will in turn give them for free, or sell them at a minimal price range. There are organizations that give them out for fee to those in need. This calls for you to search for an ideal reseller. When you find one who you will work with for long, you will get to enjoy better prices. Make sure the reseller has integrity. You need to know their shipping charges, and the party to foot the bill.
