When one has literally no money to spend, one must make do with what is 
available. I hear what everybody is saying about laser printers, but that is 
not an option. 

There are refillable cartridges, and refill bottles. I doubt that they can dry 
up. My old HP cartridges dried up because they sat in a storage space for a 
couple years. These won't dry up (at least, not so fast), because I will use 
them now. 

I'm only asking if anybody else has tried these refillables. I don't want 
advice that I *ought* to buy a laser printer, when I cannot do so.
