I tend to test at different levels each day, depends on what I am eating. If I know what the food will do I will check at 2 hrs. If it is a new food for me, I will check before and every 30 minutes until I get back below 120. Also test FBG, and at bed time to see what is going on at night.

 

By the way, Wally-World has a meter that comes with 50 strips for only $20 dollars. $0.40/strip

 

No, that's for the meter AND strips. The bulk of this cost is for the meter.

Mine works out about the same as Richard's: According to my meter, I average 13 times a day. No wonder my Johnson & Johnson stock does so well! I guess those dividends are offsetting the cost of my strips :D.
