1) How Many Children Are Enrolled In Your Daycare? 7 full-timers, 2 part-timers now.

2) What Age Groups Do You Provide Daycare Service For? 2-5.

3) What Meals Do You Serve? Breakfast (half of the kids attend), lunch (all attend), PM snack (all attend).

4) How Much Per Month Do You Spend On Daycare Oriented Items Such As Cleaning Products, Food, Diapers, Office Supplies, etc.? I haven't really added it all up, either. I'd say around $500.00 on average.

5) Where Do You Shop For Those Items? I mostly clean with vinegar (except when my hand is forced to use diluted bleach by the state), I shop the sales for food and stockpile, the only diapers I supply are cloth and they pay a fee, and office supplies are bought online from discount sites. For example, I use generic ink cartridges for my Brother printer from Amazon and get 8 or so of them for $15. Walmart, Kroger, Aldi, Dollar Tree, and online discount sites like discountschoolsupply.com and amazon.com (occasionally other places) are where I do most of my shopping.

6) What Items Would You Like To See At A Discount On Daycare.com? I suppose toys/bulk supplies for the daycare children to use.

Having ONE place to find links and sites to buy these things would save me a ton of time!

Go to Amazon, type in your printer's name, and see if any generic ink cartridges pop up with your search!

Before I had the Brother printer, I had a different brand (HP, maybe?). I used to refill those cartridges with generic ink. www.123inkjets.com is one site that sells refill packs (IF your printer cartridges can be refilled -- super easy if they can!) and generic cartridges.

I highly recommend a laser printer. They are a bit more money upfront, and the cartridges seem more expensive, but they last a really long time. Much more cost effective printing. Color laser printers have come down a lot in price over the last few years. I have a very reasonably priced samsung all-in-one (copier, fax, printer, scanner) color laser that I love.
