It might surprise a few people to discover that I do not own a printer. I made this decision because I was becoming increasingly annoyed at having to go into town to buy replacement printer ink cartridges because they seemed to run out every time I printed out one letter.
The only downside I can see to not owning my own printer is that when I need to print something off I either have to ask a friend or family member to do it for me or I have to pop into one of the many internet shops and use their printer for a fee.
The only person I know who owns a printer is my brother and he is a lazy git so I’d have to wait months even if I was lucky enough to encourage him to print anything off for me. So I opt for the internet shop.
This costs money. You have to pay for internet time and then you have to pay for the amount of pages you print out. £0.50 for thirty minutes of internet time and £0.20 per sheet printed off means that it costs at least £0.70 for me to print out anything.
With the falling prices of ink cartridge prices online these days maybe it is time for me to get myself a printer. I’ve been reliably informed that it would be cheaper for me to buy printer cartridges these days instead of using the local internet shop.
Has anyone else found it cheaper?
