There is one homeschool supply that I would never recommend going without and that item is a printer. Printers are used almost daily in our home, we print everything. I have went through my share of printers and have found the one that finally can get the job done. Let’s just say we kind of have a printer graveyard,

My reasoning behind the color laser printer came down to ink. My inkjet printers ran out of ink all of the time, and it cost about $70 to buy refills. That was too much for me to pay as frequently as we needed ink. I went on the search for the right printer for the right price.
I ended up buying my printer from Sam’s for about $200.00. It is a Samsung C460 color laser printer that has a copier, is wireless, and can print easily from your mobile phone. There are a few things that I wish this printer had though, the ability to print easliy on cardstock, and document feeder for top loading, but a printer with those features are well over the $200.00 price point. I would say for the price this printer is a good deal.

Inkjet Printers are more budget friendly, but the ink can be costly. If you choose an inkjet I recommend a wireless printer that can accommodate XL ink cartridges so you are able to print many pages without having to replace the cartridges frequently, and easily from mobile devices and.
