Thankfulness #39: Expensive Ink

Yesterday we went grocery shopping. The crowds were no more than usual, and we had some fun, but the best part was the super expensive printer ink. 

Let me start by saying I don’t like our HP printer . It was bought when wireless printers were pretty new, to replace my Kodak. The Kodak made the most beautiful ,  professional looking prints, but the print head clogged all the time and had to be replaced at 30$ ( or was it 50$?). Because if that, hubby hated it, but I was willing to deal with it – then that wireless HP came along and hubby replaced – and got rid of – my wonderful Kodak. 

Fast forward. Kodak had quit making printers, but recently partnered with someone else to make a printer that has good reviews. So a couple montjs ago I marked it as a “to buy” and have been waiting for the day to drop 60$ for it. 

So, last night we needed to buy ink for that HP. The ink cost $62. Across from it was that Kodak printer for 60$ that comes with ink. Guess which we bought? 


We haven’t hooked it up yet, but I’m excited to try it. If it prints good I can stop frequenting Office Max . 

And now my lunch is done . 

Have an expensive ink kinda day!

    I always buy generic ink. It doesn’t last quite as long but is half the price. Wherever you find a printer shop, you’ll find another shop close by selling generic ink.
