I have to admit my daugther is very concious about wasting things, or not wasting things, so I guess I’m lucky

Subject: Re: Budget101.com : Re: printer question
I have to say I agree. We have a printer because it is needed for school papers, but my kids would also routinely print out anything that caught their eye, including full color photographs. My husband is computer illiterate and would also waste a ton of ink printing out things that were not needed such as maps and directions. I know sometimes its necessary, but for our purposes, most things like that can just be jotted down on a piece of paper. We run out of ink constantly and I’m not in any hurry to replace it.
I print school things out at my office. Probably not the best thing to do, but my boss doesn’t mind and it helps.
Over the past few years, many big name companies have started using
microchips to monitor the ink level left in a cartridge. That microchip
knows when the cartridge should be empty, and doesn’t recognize a
I do disagree with the “FORCED to buy a brand new very expensive
cartridge every time!” simply because people can get away without
printing stuff. We own a printer- which is still in the box, in the
closet, where it’s been since we were given it.
I don’t print things- and when I absolutely need something printed
(which is maybe once every other week), my husband prints it off for me.
It’s insane what people are willing to buy, because they think they
NEED it, as opposed to WANTING it. I know people do use printers for
work & school, but the average family uses it to print out stuff that
isn’t needed, but rather, wanted.
Technology isn’t needed. It’s wanted.

do, they don’t work nearly as well as they did to start with. It is
horrible! You are FORCED to buy a brand new very expensive cartridge
