One of the best things a homeschooler can invest in is a black and white laser printer. It sounds more expensive than it is really. I got a Dell 1110 8 years ago on Amazon for $200 and have loved it. The toner is pretty cheap if you buy refurbished and it doesn’t dry up between printings. Rarely did we ever really need anything in color and when we did we just ran down to the office supply with the document on a thumb drive to print it. Color laser printers are much more expensive!
