Crystal Paine has a Frugal Friday’s tip each week and encourages women to submit their ideas. My dear husband says, “No one enjoys a bargain more than my wife!” so I’ve decided to submit one of my ideas.

Printer ink! Don’t you just hate paying the high prices?
Yet printers are so handy and I use mine so often. I’ve found several ways to stretch my ink.
Check out the preferences on your printer. When I’m printing things that I’m going to read and toss I get creative:
~Use the draft option which prints lighter and uses less ink.
~Print in black and white – the colored ink often costs more than the black.
~Or print two pages side by side on one page – you will find that option in the layout section of your printer’s properties.
~Be sure to print on both sides of the paper – it won’t save ink but will save paper.
~Check your mail – often times I get a letter or advertisement that are on printer sized paper and only used on one side – I pop it into my printer and print on the other side before recycling it.
~When you finish with what you’ve printed be sure to recycle or go one step further like I do and use it to line the bird cage before tossing it!
