I actually paid like 23 cents lol! I used ECBs and coupons. Got another $1 ECB with my Green Tag:) I was a window clerk (cashier) at the Post Office for years. A sweet elderly lady was a regular customer of mine, who would always bring me lunch, home baked cookies, books, stationery etc. She was 98 years old and get this, she still drove her car! What an inspiration she was!

Saving Printing Costs

Depending on your printer, it may be a good idea to do a few things to minimize the cost invloved in printing coupons.

Change Your Printer Preferences is one way to save money. I think this is one of the least known money saving printing methods.

Go to print your document.
Click on the Preferences button.

Chose the Fast or Fast Normal setting. The fast will look more pixelated but will still be readable, and the fast normal looks nearly the same as regular printing, just a tad lighter.

These printer preferences will make your printer use much less ink, saving you much money in the long run.

Another money saving method is to use the Staples Ink Reward program. You can receive $2 for each ink cartridge. The limit is 10 cartridges. When I am ready to purchase more ink, I bring a competitor coupon (Office Depot) and combine paper deals with ink purchases. Use the ink rewards and competitor coupons. My stockpile price (at Staples) is $1 for 500 reams of paper (after rebate). This is definitely a money saver!
