Printer Ink


My printer now says: printer ink low. I am happy now that this message does not pop up every month. We used to have a colored inkjet printer. It was fine until my daughter learned how to print from the computer. I have to buy new inkjet cartridges every four weeks and these colored cartridges are not cheap. I made a major decision by changing our printer from the colored one to a black and white laser printer. You may say that laser cartridges are also expensive but I buy those cheap ink online. I do not buy the branded ink but the generic ones. For one ink cartridge, it can make up to 4,000 to 5,000 copies and that is already a lot. My daughter can now print as many as she wants every day. She calls her printing stuffs "printables".

If you have empty printer cartridges, do not throw them away. You can bring them to a supply store and get store credit for recycling. I used to do that but now I bring them to my daughter’s school for their fund raising.

Kids really are very curious and a colored printer is one of their favorite. My kiddo also would love to press printers and manipulate the computer even if she's only two. Have a great day to you and your family!

Hahaha...That's exactly what we do here. We never buy new cartridges, we just inject them ourselves.
