ink usage

i bought a new printer a year ago with my main concern being with ink usage.  our last printer would sit inactive and off  for 3-4 weeks at a time and i was constantly replaceing dead cartridges.  maybe 40 or 50  pgs (mostly b/w) from websites.  the salesman said that printers need to be on 24/7 and this would solve my issue.   so i bought the officejet 6500 and 12 months later, i've already gone through 3 sets of cartridges!  so my question is: do ink cartridges need to be used more than 5 to 10 pages every month to keep them from drying out and does leaving the printer on make a difference?


thanks for any input
