So I am not feeling so very frugal and fun today (looooooong week) and plan to take off to the hospital to see a family member and not have a face to face Frugal Friday meeting today, but I want to leave you with a GREAT ink tip for work and home!

You can Save money on ink by changing your font to one that does not use as much!

See this article for more information

"Century Gothic and Times New Roman topped the list for savings Calibri, Verdana, Arial and Sans Serif were next, followed by Trebuchet, Tahoma and Franklin Gothic Medium. Century Gothic uses about 30 percent less ink than Arial."

Schools and workplaces across America are asking their staff to make this change on everything from Word to Groupwise!

Directions: Open Word, go to Format - Font, select the font and then in the lower left part of the window, click on the Default button. It will prompt you and it is set!

Further Assignment for those who are techie or want to be- apply this knowledge to everything you print. You change the font similarly in all programs so you could use this for Internet, student progress reports and more!
