In this challenging economy, it's especially important to save money wherever we can.

If you have a computer printer at home, we don't need to tell you how expensive ink cartridges can be.

PC Magazine ran some tests and it found that ink cartridges may still have as much as 40 percent of its ink left even when the computer tells you the cartridge is empty.

What you can do is simply take the ink cartridge out and shake it up to extend its use.
