Where do you get a deal on Printer Ink?

I used to buy my printer ink at Costco because it was the cheapest I could find in stores (before my coupon obsession days).  Then I found .   I can buy 10 cartridges for $50.98 Shipped!  That's about $5 each!  At  Costco online  it's around $40 just to get 4 cartridges!

When I return them empty to Staples I'll get $20 back in Staples Rewards !

Similac Savings!

My beautiful little boy was born 10 weeks early.  At birth he weighed 2 lbs 3oz. Six months later, he's up to 14.5 lbs! He's amazing!   Similac and Enfamil make great formulas for preemies.  My baby boy's digestive system prefers Similac .  The problem lies in that I have coupons for every sort of formula EXCEPT Similac! I wrote their customer relations department and let them know that my baby and I prefer to use Similac. I proceeded to ask if there was anything they could do for us. They sent me 8 bottles of formula and $10.75 worth in coupons!  Each can costs $15.49 (for a tiny 12 oz can) so any little bit helps!  They were so nice, too.  I like dealing with nice companies. :) Here's a picture of my baby boy for fun.

Recipe: Taco Soup

The other day I created my own Taco Soup recipe!  It was delicious and easy to make! 1/2 of a large onion (diced) 1/2 of a medium bell pepper (diced) 2 Tbsp oil 1 pound of ground beef 1 pkg Taco Seasoning (Old El Paso) 1 can kidney beans (drained and rinsed) I can garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed) 1 can pinto beans (drained and rinsed) 1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes Dash of garlic salt 2 cups of water Top with: Grated cheese (colby, cheddar or whatever you prefer) A dollop of sour cream Avocado slices First heat up oil in a pot. Once hot, add onion and bell pepper until onion is translucent.  Add ground beef and taco seasoning until beef is thoroughly cooked.  Add the remainder of the ingredients and bring to a boil.  Once plated, add cheese, sour cream and avocado slices.  Enjoy with a side of tortilla chips if you desire.  To enjoy with less calories, leave out the sour cream, cheese and chips :) Veronica
