Save money by choosing the right font

This 14-year-old found a way to save his school district $21,000 a year in printer ink. Change their default font to Garamond!

It all started when Mirchandani, a student at Dorseyville Middle School near Pittsburgh, Pa., noticed that he was getting a lot more printed handouts in class than he used to in elementary school. He wondered how wasteful it was, and then discovered just how expensive ink is. At up to $75 an ounce, he points out, it’s twice as expensive as Chanel No. 5 perfume.

The efficiency nut in me LOVES this. We get so much paper from our kids schools and rarely read it.
