    We have been pleased with the Brother laser printers we own. I have both an MFC all-in-one and a standard laser printer (older HL 2140).

    This is the newer version of the 2140 and it is on sale for $59.98 at Staples (usually $119.98):

    You can probably find it used somewhere for less but if you need it now and only need a basic printer with less cost per print than an ink jet, this is a good one.

    Check for any coupon codes - not sure if there are any right now.

    As far as printer ink goes, another long time reader, Nancy, posted on the blog a while ago that she buys from They have refurb ink for about 1/3 the cost of regular price from stores like Staples.

    Hope that helps! :-)

    There is a free sample of Ovaltine on their Facebook page. I love that they also include a $2 coupon with the sample which does double suring SD so I am always able to score an almost free jar of Ovaltine with the coupon.

    aneal426 - I use to purchase shipping supplies for my business.

    ncveteranswife - congratulations to all of you on the graduation! I am sure that whatever you wear will be fine. And I agree with watchhillgirl - bring lots of tissues!
