Discussion Summary

Longevity Explorers at Eskaton Village Carmichael explore and discuss a variety of products designed to organize and store various types of pills. 

Members comment on various uses of the containers for organizing such things as earrings or jewelry and one even recalls a dad who used pill organizers for his fishing hooks.

The pill organizer with levered pop-open sections is of interest to members who have difficulty prying open the standard containers.

The group studies a folding travel pack which a member from another circle brought to her meeting.

Small metal screw-top containers work for small pills, but are not convenient for someone who takes many pills or is not carrying a purse to hold them.

No one feels that one of the array of containers isn't adequate to solve their pill management and storage problems. The group is amused as one member opines that pill containers are 'over-innovated' and that "everything you could possibly want exists, with no room for innovation or focus groups or anything like that."
