I bought a new printer at Walmart cheaper than two cartridges (Black and Color) would have cost me.
That may be the answer to the problem. Buy a cheap printer everytime you need ink and put the old printer in the landfill.

One problem is that the cartridges you get when you buy the printer are often reduced capacity cartridges, so they don’t last as long as the ones you pay full price for. Personally, I would just buy a small color laser printer, because they are pretty affordable nowadays, and the toner is usually at least half the price of inkjet ink, per page.
