When you care enough not to send your very best, think "draft mode." When using an inkjet printer, consider using the lowest printing quality mode your printer will allow. Most printers are defaulted to print pages with a higher quality, meaning more ink is used. By using a draft mode, you'll save ink and extend the life of your pricey cartridges. P.S. -- Be sure to recycle your old inkjet cartridges; many office-supply stores will take them back for recycling and will even give you a few dollars in store credit for future purchases.
