If it's mechanical, don't let it around me.

  • I'm still looking for somone who might know how to set the clock in my truck. It's been an absolute mystery to me for 6 years now.

  • I bought a new car last year and haven't learned how to change the clock when the time changes. I figure that at least 6 months out of the year the time will be correct. It is one of those things that isn't on my priority list.

  • If you don't find anyone to take your ink cartridges, don't throw them away. You can get pre-paid mailers at some places (Walmart used to have them in a rack near the ink cartridges) and send the cartridges off to be refilled and resold by some third-party discount cartridge maker. You don't get anything for them, but you're keeping them out of a landfill and putting them to good use.

    For that matter, you might ask some place like Walgreens which refills cartridges if they ever need or buy old ones.

  • The Staples and Office Depot take in ink cartridges here in the Plano, and Dallas areas. I don't know exactly how it works, but you get a small credit on next months purchases. You might want to check in your area and see if they do the same.

  • I have the ink cartridges in a plastic bag to take to Staples. That's what I usually do with old ones anyway. Yes, they will give me a reward coupon. At this point, a dime reward is appreciated.

    By the way, I downgraded on the printer. It still does all four of the things I need.

  • Wouldn't ya know it...the two ink cartridges in my printer cost more than the printer itself and it came with two cartridges!

  • You can recycle your ink cartridges at Staples. We do this every 3-4 months. We go to the one in M'boro. They send you a check that you can use to purchase anything in their store.

    We have the Kodak printer that scans, copies, and prints.
