OMG ...what's next if this happens in THREEs!?

Another one bites the dust.
REALLY, now!?

My HP Officejet 7410 has decided it no longer prints black ink.
The "copy" feature works FINE in black.
Go figure.

So MORE retail therapy was in order. 
I tell you this so I can share my excellent deal.
 HP Photosmart Premium Fax e-All-in-One CQ521A
MSRP: $299.99

On sale at Staples (in stock) for $199.90
Same price online, with free shipping.

Can be gotten online from (free shipping with Prime Membership) for $149.00

Guaranteed low price match (online to online) at Staples.
Staples also offers a "Trade In and Save" -- trade in your old printer, regardless of condition, with free shipping for the trade and guaranteed recycling. 
$50.00 cash back 

So my new printer -- with a full supply of ink cartridges (MSRP: $80) --
cost $108.99, with tax and shipping and I got rid of my old printer in a "healthy" way.
Delivery is tomorrow.

No printing today -- unless you really like orange ink, which is the only color the old one prints in today.
(Just in time for Halloween!)

The only sad thing is that I just installed a fresh black printer cartridge into the old printer, to no avail.

Oh well.

First of all I'm laughing because of the song you chose. Very apropos. Another funeral in 2 days?! I'm beginning to suspect a Black Widow in the craft world. So much retail therapy starts to look a little suspicious.

You forgot that the handle of your tote decided to hop off as it was going down my stairs. Let's hope that this was #3 :)

Happy Scrappin'
