- Change your printer’s setting to “Draft” quality to reduce the amount of ink used to print your kids’ coloring pages.
- Save your unwanted home office printouts, then print coloring pages on the back of these sheets.
- Use copy paper instead of regular computer printer paper. It’s slightly thinner, but provides a significant cost savings.
- Stock up on crayons during annual back-to-school sales.
