Determine your printer's requirements.

It may seem obvious, but there is no reason to waste money on things you do not require.

Many printers are monochromatic, which means they only produce black and grayscale documents and images. Do you need both black and color cartridges for your printer, or only black ink/toner?

Examine your own printing requirements.

The way you handle and store printer cartridges has a big impact on how long they last. Proper storage is essential whether you're trying to get the most out of your purchase or simply want to learn how to care for your print supplies.

Keep your ink or toner cartridges in their original packaging. Open the box to inspect the cartridge, but don't tear open the internal plastic bag until you're ready to remove it and install it in your printer.

When you aren't actively using your printer, turn it off by pressing the on/off button. When your printer is properly turned off, it covers each cartridge to keep it from drying out. (Note: simply unplugging the printer will not move the cartridges to a protected/capped area.)

If you have an opened ink cartridge that you aren't currently using and don't have the protective cap (if your printer cartridge came with one), you can store it in an airtight plastic storage container with a damp (but not wet) cloth.
