    jma47 & FlyingUnderTheRadar - Thanks, so much, for the info about the Titanic exhibition.

    DeM - Thanks for the info about where to find inkjet cartridges on Ebay and for the great idea about printing in Draft mode. Great idea. My printer is actually an HP All-In-One type.

    DianeNC - I've recently gotten ink from inkjetcorner, duraeco, and ABCink. All cartridges appear to be new, but I can't swear to that. They AREN'T Brother cartridges. They might be made in China, but the merchant is in the US. I typically order 20 cartridges at a time, maybe a year's worth - and they certainly look new to me. Sometimes the cartridges are strangely shaped (an oval cross-section instead of a rectangle) but i've only had trouble with one cartridge out of maybe 80... the MFC does go thru a few, but I print coupons in DRAFT mode, and they scan fine at the markets. I've convinced all in my household to print in DRAFT mode unless the document requires 'polish'...

    I believe on Thursday evenings it is a few dollars cheaper...I saw the exhibit when it came to the museum several years ago (2004 maybe) and really enjoyed it.

    DianeNC, we went to the Titanic exhibit a few weeks ago. I'm not necessarily a *museum* person, but my g'daughter (visiting) wanted to go so hubby & I took her. It was a very thoughtful, dignified exhibit, but it wasn't cheap for a family outing. I haven't seen any discounts for it though. (students do get in cheaper though, about $6 I think it was.) It takes about an hour to go through it.

    Has anyone here had a chance to check out the Titanic Artifact Exhibition at the Museum of Natural Sciences downtown yet? Are there ever any coupons/discounts for things like this?

    Target has activia 3/$5 this week. If you use the $1 off coupon from last week will make a good deal for yogurt.

    5 swag bucks on their facebook page.

    happy, the cartridges for laser last longer, higher up front costs but per copy much cheaper than inkjet overall.

  • HappyGirl08 Jan 20, 2013

    Am I wrong in thinking the toner for laser printers would be more expensive than just buying ink for an inkjet printer? Christmas before last I got a really nice epsom wireless printer and I love it. It takes 6 ink cartridges but they seem to last forever!

    shelleycole - there was 1 SS insert in the paper today. I post the Sunday coupon insert preview every Thursday on the blog.
