A few days ago, I stopped by a to Staples to find a replacement ink cartridge for my printer, since someone else in my household had decided to print a 70+ page document for themselves. Whether or not they read the document or not (they didn’t, in case you’re wondering) doesn’t matter, because every printer runs out eventually and chances are, the cartridge weighs only a few ounces – if that. So whenever my life is in peril, I turn to the website that solves it all: eBay.
There, I learned about a little known cheat that would save me quite a few bucks. Apparently, ink cartridges are refillable and the ink only costs a few bucks to get yourself. Thanks HP for not mentioning that on, you’ve been a real pal for all these years.
So I bought a pack just to try (I’ll post a link on the bottom so you can use it as a reference) for $6.40. With a price tag like that, how could I not give it a try?It was extremely easy to refill with the pictured directions, so there’s no point in explaining it, but I recommend having a few paper towels on hand…
All in all, it saved me 80 bucks. So I can’t complain about having ink covered hands. But I really suggest you give this a try, because you’re only lining the pockets of massive corporations that know they’ve been ripping you off for years. No big deal.
