I had a busy Monday
It was beautiful day for running errands
And when I say “running” errands I actually mean walking errands.
Lucky for me, everything I did was within walking distance. Remember I said I love where I live. Walkable neighborhood, 74F and sunny, light breeze, yep I’ll take it.
First, I had to go to the bank
Then to Kinko’s for a printing project
I rarely print things at home and our printer wasn’t working properly and I really didn’t feel like troubleshooting it.
Between that and the router, it’s always something I tell you and I had had my fill of playing tech support to myself.
So I just went to Kinko’s.
It’s so much faster to print from Kinko’s, too, because their printers are so big and fast.
And so expensive!
A buck a page. Yikes. Who can afford that on a regular basis?!
I printed out my e-book, Say No To Auto
And also printed this Photography Cheat Sheet I had in my email
After my errands and coming back home, I took a glorious run
Did a little at-home yoga
Had a snack
And then I received a tweet with some fun news:
They featured my Raw Vegan Pasta Salad with Creamy Lemon & Herb Dressing
From my last post, Listening to your Hunches & Instincts, I am glad that most of you do pay attention to those little voices inside your head. It’s an absolute must.
And computer router issues, yes, so many of you said you have similar issues with yours every few years. Note to self: next time my computer is running painfully slowly and I know it’s not my computer itself that’s the culprit, first thing to try and swap out is the router. So easy and if it wasn’t the router, just save your receipt and bring it back.
1. How often do you print things out? Any tips for doing it efficiently and economically when you need things printed?
As I mentioned, I almost never print things anymore.
Probably less than 5 pieces of paper per month, and some months zero.
Why so little printing?
It’s wasteful for the environment
Ink cartridges, even at home, are expensive
It’s slow because I don’t have a fancy schmancy printer
It’s finicky because my computer is Bluetooth connected to the printer in Scott’s office and it doesn’t always get a signal and it’s just not worth dealing troubleshooting since I do so little of it. So it usually works, but not always. Oh well.
Whatever I “needed” to have printed, i.e. directions or a grocery list or similar, I email it to myself and then when I’m driving or at the grocery store, I just read it from the email on my phone
And the less I print, the less I rely on printing. It’s like screw it. I’ve lived this long without printing other things, why bother with printing this particular item, mentality.
But when I do need to print things, I sure don’t want to go to the printing poorhouse!
2. Any Readers Request Posts you’d like to see me cover?
I am always open to suggestions. Doesn’t mean I’ll do it, but you can ask.
