Frugal Friday: Saving Money on Printer Ink

Are you like me, do you love to print coupons?? Do you go a little crazy sometimes and print too many? I know I do. I receive a lot of questions from my readers but one of the most common questions is "How do I save money on printer ink?" Up until now my answer has always been "I don't know but if you find out please tell me!"

I have finally found a way to save money on printer ink. Several weeks ago my HP Desk Jet Printer died. : ( I knew I had to get a new printer fast since there were lots of great coupons that I needed to print. It was a coupon emergency!!

My husband (he is a computer & technology geek) & I did some research and the printer that kept standing out was the Kodak ESP 3 All in One Printer. This printer sells for about $70 at Wal-Mart and I love it!!!! Not only does it print but it has a scanner, it copies and you can plug a memory card directly into the printer. Now here is the best part: The ink refills are cheap and they last as long as the expensive ones!!!! The black cartridge costs $9.99 and the color cartridge is only $15.99 at Wal-Mart and Target (and probably other stores as well). I love the print quality and this printer is very user friendly. If you are in the market for a new printer or you want to change printers to save money on ink this one is definitely worth looking into!

(I purchased this printer myself and I was not paid or asked to review this product. This review is just an informative review for my readers. I received no products, money or compensation for reviewing this product.)
