In these times of high costs one has to save money wherever possible, and it is no different when it comes to buying computer supplies. The wide range of products available, attractive packaging, and aggressive marketing techniques make it seem as if one can’t survive without these things. It is easy to get caught in the trap and buy things one does not really use.
1. Get Only What You Need
The first rule of saving money is to buy only the items that are actually needed; for example, if the only printing someone normally does is black and white and they usually just buy a black cartridge, then buying a multi-color pack of printer ink simply because it is on sale is like money thrown out. Obviously, the multi-color pack is going to cost more than a single cartridge, so they just paid extra for something they don’t really need.
