It is back to school time - this week where I live the traditional year students started school (including my teen). Back to School has a way of sneaking up on parents for sure. One minute you are enjoying the summer and the next minute you are scrambling to buy clothes, school supplies, shoes, etc.
A lot has changed since I was a student. In college I had an electric typewriter - that was in high demand at the dorms! In even more demand was the word processor that one of the other girls had. All of this is so obviously outdated or obsolete by today's standards.
Students today need to be equipped with the proper technology tools to succeed. Whether a college student or a student entering high school OR simply a grade school kid sharing a family computer, technology is a must.
My elementary and middle school aged kids have specific sites to visit that are required for homework and my high schooler uses various online tools. A home PC is a truly a must - I cannot imagine not having one. In addition to regular homework, the girls frequently have projects that require printing, whether for papers, presentations or graphics - all requiring a PC that is user friendly but can perform on demand!
Walmart is a great option for back to school - with everyday low prices and great variety, Walmart is sure to have everything your family needs for back-to-school! (In fact, I was even there today picking up some last minute back to school items...)

The HP All-in-One Printers are wonderful because you can fax, scan or print. Even if your home office is simply a computer desk, with this printer properly set up you can have the functionality that you would in a complete home office!
If you DO invest in an HP Printer, remember to stock up on ink cartridges and see saving from 10% to 40% (compared to the price of other competitors or the price of going to the printers vs. printing at home). You can even recycle your used cartidges at Walmart!!!!
While you are at Walmart looking over the fabulous HP selection, don't forget to stock up on your back to school items. Check out my video on back to school shopping at Walmart and the HP video on the DV6 below:
