Back To School With HP – Giveaway!


It’s time for the kids to head back to school and in my house that means I’ve been busy getting prepared. One of my goals this year is to be more organized and with our schedules becoming more and more busy I have to be. I have to say my office tools are what help keep me sane. My organization board keeps all of our important dates and schedules. It’s such an easy way to keep notes about what’s going on in our life. I love that I can also pin papers like the September things we are studying like our English and Spanish words.

Another tool that is my must have has been a good printer. Our family just loves HP so we were excited to review the HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer. This thing literally does it all with copy, scan, fax, and even email in your prints. I love the style and functionality of HP’s newest All-In-One printer.

Expand your home printing horizons.
• Print documents and photos, make copies and scans, send faxes, access the Web,and print on the go.
• Scan everyday documents and photos straight to e-mail, and scan multiple files to a single document.
• Do more in less time, using an e-all-in-one with a 25-sheet automatic document feeder and fast print speeds.
• Save time—automatically print and copy on both sides of a single page.

I need tolls that are going to help simplify and organize my life and I can say that my printer is one of those tools. The double sided printing has to be our favorite feature.

    the HP Envy 110 e-all in one is definitely sweet for back to school, and I know my grandsons would love personalized lunchboxes and my daughter would enjoy the personalized notebooks.

  3. says

    I visited the pinterest page, and I think the personalized lunchboxes are very cool! What a great idea! I’m still old school, though – when I think of school supplies, I think paper, pens, notebooks, pencils, and maybe a protractor.

    I like the Boo! “Monsters” personalized lunch box from Snapfish & Frecklebox.

  8. Mike S. says

    My HP essential is actually just toner for our ancient HP laser printer that keeps on keeping on. Its a 1992 behemouth, but its printed everything I’ve thrown at it for the past 10 years without fussing and even though I’ve tried to replace it a few times with a fancy ink jet, they die and I switch back. They seriously don’t make ’em like they used to…
