I went to Staples today, because I am thinking about buying a new printer. I found a basic printer (HP brand) for $33.99 and I was impressed by the low cost. The printer comes with everything you need, including a set of ink cartridges.
I was about ready to buy the printer and decided to find out how much it will cost to buy replacement ink cartages. It cost $51.99 to buy a set of cartridges for the printer.
That just boggles my mind. It would be cheaper to replace the printer whenever it runs out of ink than to buy new ink.
Maybe I will just buy 10 printers and be done with it.
