Frugal Smartphone? by [email protected]

Computer printer ink cartridge by [email protected]
I have the most basic HP laser printer. I am getting a message that the ink is running low. Once upon a time, I think I could get it refilled by the likes of Office Max for under $20. Now I am being told that I need to buy a whole new cartridge for $60. Am I the only one having that experience?
