Ever been to Amazon.com?

Sure, everyone has. But how about lately?

If you're in the market for a printer, the site's new Ink & Toner Finder makes it easy to save money on ink without investing the time in manually refilling your cartridge.

The tool allows you to find an alternative (read: other than OEM) refill made for your printer. Simply tell the tool your printer brand, series, and model number, and it spits back all the ink cartridges that will work with your printer.

I gave it a whirl myself, and even though Amazon doesn't carry my printer (which I highly recommend), it gave me several refills to choose from. (Click the image to enlarge it.)

If you've never strayed from buying ink from the original manufacturer (and paying for the convenience), this may help save you green.
