As a home office worker in Australia, you've got enough things to worry about spending money on without having to stress about your printing expenses too. Well, the good news here is there are plenty of practical ways to reduce your spending on printing, without cutting it out altogether.
But where to start? These are our tried and tested steps for reducing home office printing costs.
Before you can cut printing costs, you need to understand them.
First, write up a budget of every dollar you spend on your printer per year. Make sure this list includes:
Even though it's harder to work out, don't skip adding maintenance and power usage to the list - you may find that these are two of your biggest budget eaters.
Rather than printing less, which we understand isn't always practical, try printing differently. For example, using "duplex" mode on your device will print each sheet double-sided, saving on paper costs. If you print A5 size, you could print two documents on one A4 sheet.
For those of you who have the right device, you could buy smarter ink, too. For example:
Finally, if you've drawn up a budget and made appropriate cuts but still find yourself spending too much, your printer is probably not right for you. In this instance, we recommend investing in a new home office device that suits your low-cost needs.
What can you get from a better printer?
