#MondayThoughts: New printer


With all the sales last week, I had an eye on a new printer. What prompted this printer wanderlust?

Well, I got new ink for my old printer and I realized I could probably get an entirely new printer for the same price. I mean…that’s ridiculous, right?

And the truth is the old printer and I have never really seen eye-to-eye. It’s slow, so very, very slow, so slow that, when you tell it it needs to print, it thinks about it. And thinks about it. And thinks about it.

Then tells you it’s low on ink.

The scanning is so awkward. Everything about it is awkward. Still, it worked and I didn’t want to replace it until it didn’t. But then the ink became ludicrously expensive.

I admit it was slow to set up my new printer, because printer setup has always been so frustrating, but it wasn’t bad. And there it sits, all ready to go, looking so much sleeker than the previous black chunk.

Change can be good, you guys. Have a great post-holiday Monday.

  1. I kept eyeing a writing desk from Target, but I wisely put it on my Christmas wish list (or I will have.) I bought a new vacuum for 209 original price was 300 something. The one I wanted was 84 but Kohl’s said it was sold out already. I also bought an expensive leather jacket from Hot Topic and plane tickets to see my mom (I go visit her every Christmas.) Between all of that and the fact that I need to do some holiday shopping, and I had to pay rent, I need to budget for a few months. My long-winded way of saying glad you got a printer that works better! I too have things I lust after writing wise.

    • TOTALLY get it! And it’s tough to resist such good sales when they’re actually selling stuff you need!

      But I am really loving the printer. My old one took about 5 minutes to think about printing before it printed and now it’s immediate. And the quality is so much better.
