Sure: You do not have to use the one that comes with the unit. Any compact, purse, pouch, whatever that will hold all the necessary equipment and supplies and provide them some basic protection (from dropping/squishing), should work fine.

Check w/ your doctor: Sometimes, meter companies give meters to doctors' offices or pharmacies, knowing that once you have a particular meter, you're likely to buy strips for that meter for a long time. Check w/ your doc or pharmacy. Other companies off rebates after you pay for a meter for the same reason. Most meters, though, can be bought for $20-25.
