How to Print a PDF file from a Mac or Windows PC

I love saving money, that’s why I prefer to print a pdf rather than go to the store and buy a ton of products. Don’t get me wrong, I still love to shop and am blessed with a lot of product to use. But, when I’m trying to save money, need something now, or get designs not available in the store, I go digital.

To save on printing costs, I use an HP Printer and get my ink via subscription, which I have found costs me under 4 cents per print (.033 to be exact). Specifically, I use an HP Envy 5660, but you can find an updated version using our affiliate link here – we may receive a commission from your purchase – thank you for supporting our ministry: New Printers.

To save on ink, I use the HP Instant Ink subscription service. They have plans as low as free 🙂 You can use our referral link here:
