Archimedes Strikes Gold During a Morning Walk !

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

So, there I was out for my morning walk when I pass by a dumpster next to an office building. I pass by this dumpster all the time and occasionally, I've looked to see what people have tossed. I'll admit it. I've been known to rescue stuff from the trash. Hey, one man's trash is another man's treasure !

As I was walking past the dumpster, I noticed what seemed to be new ink jet cartridges. So, I decided to take a closer look. Lo and behold, YES !!! Someone had put out some brand new (in unopened boxes) Epson and HP ink jet printer cartridges ! I picked them up and read the box. YES !! The black and color were both correct for my old Epson printer !!!

Needless to say, I grabbed them !! Do you know how much money ink jet printer cartridges cost ? In some cases, MORE than the actual printer !!

I was thrilled !! A new Epson black cartridge costs around $25 and the color goes for $30+. I saved over $50 in printer ink !!

Talk about a productive walk for the morning !
