Don’t Let Your Printer Run Out of Ink! Plus How to Get it Cheaply!

I learned a valuable lesson about printer ink this week. Chances are, if you follow this blog, you do quite a bit of printing.

I had been happily printing coupons for months with no problems. Then, the other day, my printer stopped working. It just stopped. I hit print, and the printer just sat there.
So... instead of doing this:

I headed to Staples and looked for ink. It was my color ink that was out, not the black and white. I was expecting the worst. And I got it: $35 for ink! No sale, no nothing. Same at Office Max and Depot. I couldn't do it. I left, thinking about my next move.

I got home and went to... EBAY! I knew I would have to wait a few more days, but the savings were worth it.
I have a color ink cartridge on the way for $9 shipped! The seller has over 100k feedback at 99.8% positive, so I am very comfortable in my purchase.

This brings me to my next point; Ebay.

Ebay is perfect for things like ink. Small, cheap to ship things that are expensive in stores, but easy to make a generic of and sell for cheap online.

I recommend it to anyone looking to purchase ink, or anything they want a bargain on. Chances are, someone is selling it, and at a decent price.

As for me, as soon as my ink comes, I am ordering a backup one from the same seller just to have one on hand to avoid this situation again.

What did it cost me not having one for 4 days?
$6 from Rite Aid (could not print and use 2 survey $3/$15 coupons). Not much, but could have been avoided. Also could have been worse.

Save Money on Your Cell Phone Plan! Check Out Virgin Mobile!

Let me start by saying that I have Virgin Mobile as my cellular provider. I switched from Sprint exactly 12 months ago and have saved a total of over $450 in that time. I am 100% satisfied with everything Virgin Mobile provides. As a matter of fact, Sprint actually owns Virgin Mobile, so Virgin uses Sprint cell towers! Make sure to look up their coverage map to see if you are covered.

I had a plan without internet access, unlimited text messages and 400 anytime minutes of talk time and unlimited night and weekend minutes. I was paying over $60 per month. I would get my bill and see that I would average using about 100 anytime minutes per month and 50 night and weekend minutes. What a waste!

I now have the $25/month plan from Virgin Mobile which gives me 300 minutes per month, UNLIMITED text messages, UNLIMITED web access and UNLIMITED web data for downloads and anything else!

Basically, if you don't talk on your phone an average of 10 minutes EVERY SINGLE DAY, you are wasting your money elsewhere.

Soooo...that brings me to the picture above.

Right now, you can get this super cool, easy to use and fun cell phone for just $49.99 (Regularly $89.99)!

You might be under contract with your current provider, but look into how much canceling will cost. I canceled my Sprint account and after selling the cell phone they gave me for signing up for the plan, I practically broke even.
