Jeffrey Mincey on printer woes and going paperless.
While shopping for new ink cartridges we noticed that some ink printers that were on sale were about the same price as a package of ink cartridges– and the printers came with more features (scanner, copier, printer, fax machine). And the new printer came with ink cartridges, too. Why buy the ink when it’s free with a new printer at about the same price?
We ran into the exact same problem. We just don’t print as much these days. What about going paperless?
Lurking around in the back of the head are a variety of fears that actually overshadow the fear we had that a fire or tornado or North Georgia earthquake or theft might eliminate our paper documents forever. Digital files are more recoverable but we still worry about natural disasters, online thieves and hackers, nosy neighbors, or careless storage practices– fears we did not have with a file cabinet (which we still have).
Sometimes change is hard.
