"Back to School" happened a whole lot faster than usual this summer. I swear I started seeing back to school supply setups in stores much earlier than usual this year! I didn't know wether to be excited or sad, but I'm honestly so ready to get back into a routine and for Fall to get here! While I'm not actually in school anymore and Oaklyn isn't anywhere near ready to start school, we still do have one student in the house! Hunter is finishing up his last year and a half of college and just recently got accepted into the business program! We were so excited when we found out and I of course am so proud of him because it's a hard program to get in to. With Hunter about to start his most challenging semester yet, I figured it would be a good idea to get him all the reliable supplies he really needed to stay organized and work efficiently.

On top of starting a new program at school, we are also moving... in like a week! This came as a bit of a surprise to us, but we're headed just up the street so it isn't too much of a change. We've been going through the things we will need when we get to our new place, and one thing we needed was a printer! I had a few standards for our new printer including:

1. Wireless, to make printing from any room or device a breeze. Also, less setup. Don't we all want less setup?
2. Pretty and compact. We don't have much space as renters, so the less bulky, the better. 
3. Reasonable ink consumption.
4. All in one, and durable so it can last us a while. 

We headed straight to our local Walmart to look for a printer to ensure affordability and value. The printer that quickly caught my eye was the HP Deskjet 3752 because of how sleek the white looked.

I also honestly could not believe how compact it was for all of the functions it includes. It manages to print, scan, and copy without taking up a bunch of desk space. I was a little bit worried about having to constantly buy ink, but luckily, it can print 2.5 times as many pages with optional Original HP high-yield ink cartridges. The HP Deskjet 3752 is the world’s smallest all-in-one printer and is designed to fit, and look good anywhere! I was sold right as I saw it but once I learned that you can print straight from your phone, I knew I needed to have it. It fit our budget, and it definitely fit our needs!

The setup for this printer was a breeze! I set it up almost immediately after picking it up from Walmart and it took less than 20 minutes. No crazy wiring or messing with hefty setup instruction manuals... I literally typed a web address into my browser and followed the simple instructions to set it up. Each printer even has it's own email address to make it convenient and simple to send things you want printed. To make things even easier, You can download the HP all in one remote app to easily connect your smart phone or your tablet to your printer, and easily print or scan without a network!

So what was the first thing I did with this printer? I made sure my husband would be organized as he enters an all new program at school. I made him some nifty class dividers so he can keep all of his assignments and notes in one place without worrying about losing them. I also made him a fun binder cover in honor of his dad who recently passed away so that he can stay uplifted and inspired during a hard school day. 

Here's how I made the dividers:
1. Design each divider image on a photoshop option of prefereance. If you don't have a photoshop program downloaded, check out picmonkey or canva for free. You can also design it on your phone.
2. Save the image to your computer and easily print wirelessly from your desktop, tablet, smart phone, or laptop with the HP Deskjet 3752.
3. Stick the printout in a plastic page protector.
4. Use colored paper cut into little rectangles and tape them on to the edge of your divider to make easy to navigate tabs. Cut off the excess tape.
5. Stick the new dividers in your three ring binder and you are all set for an organized school year!

If you want to make yourself a fun and inspirational binder cover, download the one I made for my husband here and insert your own pictures. My Father in Law always said this quote to his kids growing up to teach them to reevaluate the situation they were in. It has also stuck with me as I try to learn a new skill and find myself having to make adjustments to get the end result I had hoped for.   

I hope you enjoyed this fun little tutorial and I really hope you go pick up one of these printers! They are a perfect fit for millennials and college students heading back to school this fall. So now I'm curious, what kind of subject divider are you going to design with your HP Deskjet 3752?

All my love,
Aleigh Joy

  1. The binder arrangement also makes it simple to discover and retrieve papers, making it an excellent solution for firms that need to keep track of a big number of documents. I also print my papers for the binder printer and examine the results at:
