I use Instant Ink too, I print even less than you so I only pay £1.99 a month, kid's homework etc. taken care of and if we get through 2 carts a year we're quids in. No more running out of ink at annoying moments. They even give you an postage-paid envelope to recycle the old ones.
At least Apple are trying to bring a bit of design to the PC - I really liked the 'bin' design, and the 'lamp' and especially the G4 Cube. Unfortunately the designs hobbled the functionality. But even their tower designs are beautiful - did you see the EEVblog teardown of the Power Mac G5? (goo.gl/RssygC). Lovely things. Wouldn't ever buy one though!
after trying refills, 3rd party inks (terrible) and then being caught short and having to spend £25 in Tesco on a colour cartridge. I've gone for the Instant Ink option, £1.99 a month and HP send me a new cartridge when the printer tells them I need one. Freepost recycling envelopes too.
My brother lives in NZ (we're Brits) and he has one steer at a time on his small plot. He hires a guy who turns up in a Land Rover, drives across the field and shoots the animal when it's looking the other way. He says the same thing, if the animal is stressed it spoils the meat. Then he takes it away and comes back a few days later with joints, mince, burgers, steaks, whatever you want, all ready to go in the freezer. My bro says it's the best meat he's ever tasted.
