Baby Its Cold Outside

We were supposed to get another foot or so of snow overnight and into this morning, so I went to bed expecting to have a snow day today. Alas, the snow had the nerve to stop early in the morning and the plow guys did their jobs much too well, so my plans were dashed. I was so looking forward to a day of lounging around in my sweats.

Nosy questions since you brought up printer ink - I see you bought Canon, may I ask which Canon you have? Do you think you get a lot of prints for what you pay for ink?

I feel like I'm paying an awful lot for my Lexmark cartridges even though I got a really great deal on it - maybe it's just because all I ever print is coupons! :)

And sorry about your no-snow-day letdown! I know how that feels!

I have a Canon MP210. Its a combo scanner/printer and I think it does really well for ink usage. Can you change the settings on your printer so it prints with a lower quality? That will save you some ink. I do that and I've never had a problem using the coupons.
