    I don't recall which printer you have, but it might be worthwhile to 
invest in a CISS (Continuous Ink Supply System), if one is available for 
that printer.  Often available for less than $35, it will go for (often) 
years on a tank of ink, eliminate the need for frequent ink cartridge 

    I've been using one for years on an Epson Photo Stylus R380.
