Saving Money On Ink Cartridges
I have to admit that I am still completely in love with our "new" printer, although new may not accurately describe it anymore as it is 2 years old. It's a Canon Pixma, and one of the things I love about it is that all the ink color cartridges are separate, so that I only have to replace a color when that specific color runs out, rather than replacing red, blue and yellow when only the blue stops working.
If I go to a "brick and mortar" store, each ink cartridge costs me approximately $13. All in all, it's not a huge savings over what I was paying before with my "all in one cartridges" but, since I only have to replace one color at a time, I do believe that I am saving money in the long run.
There are several online stores that sell compatible ink cartridges for much less than the name brand cartridges. I found one site that lists online stores where you can purchase cheap Hewlett Packard printer ink cartridges or even compatible ink cartridges for my Canon printer.
In addition to listing the stores where you can find these products, Inkjet Deals also provides a list of coupon codes so that you can save even more money.
I enjoyed reading these tips to help save ink and by doing so, saving even more money. Some of these suggestions are really simple, such as making sure that you use economy mode as much as possible. Others are good ideas that I need to be sure to follow - such as only printing the portions that you need (in addition to using less ink, think of how much paper you can save!). There are other easy tips that I'm eager to try, it will be neat to see how well they work!
Happy printing, everyone!
