Budding Artists and a Cartridges Direct Discount

I love it when my kids get all creative. They sometimes spend a few hours using different art programs on the computer. They can create a beautiful masterpiece, that looks so colourful and clever. They have a bit of fun and it really looks great. It gets their creative juices flowing and I love it when they feel a sense of accomplishment and pride when they finish.

My kids love using the basic Windows Paint program. This is just a standard, simple little art program, that comes with Windows. My two girls are quite good at it. Bethany has been using it since she was about 2 so she is an 'expert’ at it now.

Of course when they are finished colouring, my kids want to print their creations out. There have been those times when my children spend ages making their pictures look so beautiful and then they ask me “Can I print it out now Mum?” Then I realise that the colour toner in the printer is running out and I don’t have a spare. Don’t you hate that feeling. You need to print something and you can’t because you don’t have any ink left.

Buying toner and ink can be a bit confusing at times. It is hard to know which one to buy when you are out. They can be expensive so you want to get it right.

Buying online can take a lot of the stress out of buying toner and ink cartridges.

Cartridges Direct can make it a lot easier for you. Have you ever looked at their website when you need to buy some more ink or toner? They really do make it quite easy.

Cartridges Direct are generously offering my readers a 5% discount on their online orders.

When you have added an item to your shopping basket, there is a little box above your item labelled 'Coupon'. Here you just need to type in the code X567XC1 and click the box which says 'Apply Coupon' and your discount will be applied to your order.

Something that I need to remember is that it is always good to have a spare toner in the drawer, especially when you have kids around.

Enjoy your holidays! Have fun and please take care.
