Today's frugal move happened on the office front. Thanks to Craigs List my old laser printer has a new home, and my business checking account has an additional $75 in it! A few weeks ago the quality of printing from my 8,000 pages per toner Brother printer was no longer acceptable. After all, I charge people money for paper (for those new to Frugal Upside, I am an estate planning and probate attorney) and it should look perfect. Smudges are not acceptable. So, out it went. The new model was the exact same one, purchased for $350. I'll get the amazing 8,000 pages per toner and no learning curve since it is the same model. It took a few weeks, but the wonder that is Craigs List landed the old one in the office of an in-home daycare. Likely a perfect fit.
Other frugal developments at the office are in action now. Hard decisions. Honest review of numbers. And the ever present question, am I spending my time as wisely as I could be? More on those decisions later. But in a nutshell the changes were not easy, but in my gut I know I am on the proper path, one that will lead me to spend not only my money, but my time wisely.
