Screen color vs. print color

How can i get the colors on my computer screens to match what comes out of the printer??? I know it probably cant be exact because its rgb vs cmyk, but my screens aren't even close. It would be nice not to have to print test samples everytime to match colors. is there a solution to this problem without droping a grand on it?

You can get your screens calibrated but you should always print a sample on actuall material with actuall printer involved to get the customer to signoff - this is for both parties involved to be covered.

Calibrate your printer first. Output is more important than input, sales wise.
Then calibrate your monitor, this is cheaper and easier than the first step.
