Sorry if there's a similar post, but I don't recall anything like this.

I just got diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and as such I have to carry around a glucose monitor, blood sugar diary, etc. So of course this requires a Coach item to place it in! I have a clutch/wristlet (an oversize wristlet) in pretty Teal patent leather (outlets last year) that is sufficing nicely.

Any others using Coach items in a non-traditional manner?

Yeah, I'm Type 1 diabetic, and on an insulin pump. So I have to carry about extra pump supplies, insulin, and candy. I have a capacity wristlet for my insulin/pump stuff, and an Amanda satin make up bag for candy and stuff for low blood sugars. My glucose monitor has it's own case, but if they made a coach case for it, I'd buy it! :smile:

My mum has type 2 and she does the same thing that you do (over sized wristlet for the blood monitor).

I've put Ziplocs of baby supplies in my regular Coach bags and used them as diaper bags in the past. I hated carrying a purse and a bulky diaper bag as well.

I have a capacity wristlet to carry my epi-pen and migraine medication in. I don't know if that is considered unusual per se though.

I have friends that are assistant principals and school principals that use the cross body bags to carry their walkie talkies. Needless to say, they look fantabalous!

idk if this counts, but I use the dust bags that little things come in (wrislets, etc) for my pens and pencils in some bags. I have one that holds my molecular model kit for chemistry! haha
