Weekly Money Tip! Office supplies can be pretty expensive when it comes to toner, ink or paper so learn how to shop for generic items. I used to buy our toner for our office printer at a local office supply store for $89.49 each. We were …going through one of these toners every 2 weeks. Then one day we had a client mention that he had the same printer and bought all his toner on Amazon (generic versions). I checked it out, they were only $10.70 each!! The other great thing….they last about 3 months!!! I went from spending $200 per month on black toner to about $4.00 saving me $196 per month on that alone. I know we have a lot of facebook friends that have small businesses and this can really add up to some big bucks at the end of the year.
