I keep mine inside my pillow case. That way I don't have to reach over to tje table. I have the cvs thermometer and it remembers the last temp. So, I can temp and go back to sleep.
I do this too except my therm is on the nightstand. I set a "temping alarm" for 5 am, so when it goes off I may be a little groggy at first but I remember it is my temping alarm because I don't get up that early for any other reason. I grab my therm without even turning the light on, take my temp, and go back to sleep.
Later, when I wake up for the morning I turn on the therm to get the temp and put it in my phone.
Edited for correct grammar. Good Lord.
