Frugal Friday

It is time for another addition of Frugal Friday....

My 12 year old laser printer is out of commission..... yikes!!! It is the most economical printer I have ever had!!! I got it my junior year in college and have printed THOUSANDS of pages through it and have only replaced the ink 5 times in 12 years! The toner costs $40 each..... not bad for 12 years of printing. I went out and bought ink for the ink jet..... so pricey for the number of prints. I am going to have a friend try to fix my laser (it has a sheet of paper JAMMED in) and if that isn't possible will be investing in another laser. I do so much printing with Simple Family Supper that I need an economical way to print.

My frugal tip: LASER printers!!!!!!!

Yep - laser printers are the way to go, especially if you do a lot of printing. My family's Christmas gift to my dad was a laser printer for that very purpose and he's VERY happy with it!
