Saving Money with the new HP XL ink cartridges(and spending it on other things) #GIVEAWAY

I think with the amount of ink I use on a monthly basis, I alone keep HP in business. No, really. As a homeschool mom~ I likely print at least 75 pages a month. Add all the stuff my kids like to print despite being told no time and time again……….Yup that ink cartridge I just dropped $40 is gone. Poof. 

So I shopped around looking for a printer that required cheaper ink~problem was when they stepped down in price……they stepped down in quality. When I want my butterfly pink, I want it PINK!! I don’t want to pay for watered down colors. After all that, I figured I was destined to purchase new ink every month. Until this bad boy came out!! 

HP XL ink cartridges may look the same as regular ink cartridges, and they even fit in the same spot BUT these are not your typical ink cartridges! The new HP XL printer inks print up to 2X the amount of pages as a standard cartridges depending on the type of printer you have(some have even more capacity!). There is a 40% savings with the new XL ink cartridges! What mom doesn’t want to save money!! 

Walmart is now the go to place for HP ink needs! They have a wide selection of HP inks, including the new XL cartridges. Or shop online at Walmart.Com/ink to have it shipped to your door. I found everything I needed, and used the handy flip chart in the ink section to be sure I got the right one!

Or spend it……..With the money saved perhaps we could buy a new laptop down the road. At least this little one thought so!

I set forth to use the money I was saving to find some really great deals! I always start with the bright yellow clearance balloons! 

I’ll be honest~I rarely use coupons. I simply do not have time to cut them out. Between a 40 hr week at work, blogging, and homeschooling YEAH RIGHT!! That’s why I shop Walmart~ their roll back prices and products with peelies help me save! 

Savings between my new ink money and Walmart savings means I get to look for the things I really WANT!!! This mama needs a new little vaccum that the kids can use(training them young)!! 

Of course after basic necessities like food…… allotted money was about out!

I checked out~proud of my money savings!! I found some great coupons in store, and combined with roll back prices and savings from switching to HP XL ink I made $75 go further than ever before! 

Look for HP XL ink in store and see what you can save! 

BUY IT: I found HP XL inks to be a few dollars more than regular inks but obviously since the about double to usage~you are really saving! 

WIN IT: We are giving away a $20 Walmart Gift Card! Ends 11/4

    I have been really wanting to buy a wireless printer – mainly to print coupons but now I’m wondering if what I’ll save in coupons justifies the cost of a printer and ink? I do hate cutting coupons but for now I do as often as I can. It’s helpful when bloggers post these kind of posts, thanks for doing the research for me!
