    What is hp instant ink and is hp Instant Ink worth it? (including 7 months of free printing!)

    Home » working from home

    I’m probably late to the party but I just discovered small business subscriptions for ink with the HP ink program and it’s a total game changer for working from home or your small business office!

    If you’re just here for the HP Instant Ink free months code, click here or use dbbg1g.

    Remember the old days of printing? Never fully understanding which cartridges to buy, or where to recycle. Running low on ink when you really needed to print something and more horror experiences than I can remember.

    I used to only have a professional black and white Brother printer that’s great for business admin, but as a creative business it’s a total game changer to now also own a HP color printer with unlimited (read: 300 copies a month) pages to print. And that’s a lot! But it’s only costing me less than $12 a month! Hello Instant Ink Program!

    What is a HP Instant Ink subscription?

    With an Instant Ink Subscription you get new ink cartridges in the mail without the hussle. It knows two main differences from other printers:

    Part 1: never out of ink

    Your printer is via wifi connected with HP, and it notifies them when you’re almost out of ink and they send you new ink.

    Part 2: pay for what you print

    You get a subscription for ‘x’ amount of pages per month, and you get to print those pages without any extra costs. If you don’t reach your limit, you get to take the rest of the pages to next month.

    Get started with HP Instant Ink

    Watch the video:

    Original HP Ink ordered by your printer, delivered to your door.

    Instant Ink is HP’s ink delivery service. Your HP Printer automatically orders ink, and cartridges. The HP Instant Ink delivery service can save you up to 50% on ink. They are delivered to your door before you run low and you get to recycle your old ones, just add them to the box your new ones got delivered with and mail them back to HP.

    Monthly plans

    See how you can save time and up to 50% on ink that’s ordered by your printer and delivered to your door before you run out.

    Is HP Instant Ink Worth it?

    Yes! As a small business owner, blogger and all around creative I enjoy printing colourful pages so much. To print my own products and planners, to create vision boards and more. I got the 300 a month plan, and to be honest… that’s a lot. I was really happy with my free months of printing as well and to never go to the store to buy the (wrong) cartridges and all those things. I really enjoy the wireless part of the printer too. I hated those wires that came with my old printer and the fact that I always had to be close to the printer with my computer to be able to print. Now I just print from my mobile or laptop and it’s so easy!

    But keep in mind when choosing a HP Instant Ink plan that printing is not good for the environment and that you still have to get the paper. And those packages come often in 500 pages, so that would mean about one pack every month. Also, as a (wannabe) minimalist I’m not a big fan of paper everywhere, so I only print what I need to and try to use the paper twice if it’s just a draft.

    Trust me, start with a smaller plan

    So I suggest you start with one of the lower plans to see how you like it. How often you really need to print. I know how tempting it is to print every recipe you come across now and every beautiful motivational quote of image you find on Pinterest, and allll the planners you use but is it really necessary or will you print it just because you can ‘for free’?

    Ways To Earn Money Pretty Simply From Home

    Earning money is something we must all do in order to generate a good life for ourselves. Due to the recent worldwide pandemic, we’ve pretty much all been working from home – many still have to head out, but so many people have been stationed in their abodes due to the crisis. While many don’t exactly like this setup as they get itchy feet, there are many who are comfortable with it.

    Those who like the idea of working from home will be in a pretty blissful spot right about now due to the comfort zone they’ve been put into. These kinds of people don’t realize, though, that they could absolutely make this kind of thing a permanent job. In this day and age, working from home is something that is so very popular – regardless of any epidemic or pandemic that may come our way. 

    So many people on the planet are raking in good money while sitting at home. There is a big selection of wonderful jobs that we could take part in. If you’re interested in something like this as you feel as though your current situation isn’t quite cutting it, then here are some options that may pique your interest a little further and check out the Ultimate Guide to Money + Finance here to learn more:

    Content Writing

    In this day and age, websites are everywhere. Businesses, individuals, charities, and all kinds of organizations are looking to create an online hub that provides info and promotes what they’re doing further. Unfortunately, not every business owner is the greatest at throwing content onto a site. This is where writers can come in and do the job. If you’re good at writing and can string sentences together that go well with homepages, landing pages, articles, and many other areas, then you’re good to go. Don’t know where to start? Check out the Ultimate Guide To Blogging to get started with content creation.

    Virtual Administrator Or Assistant

    A business will always have admin work that needs to be completed. While not everyone leaves school and aspires to become a virtual assistant, it’s still a great job that can hand out lots of different skills and experience in a pressuring environment. You can do so much in a short space of time and receive a good pay-packet. 

    Consulting

    People will always need a little guidance in areas they aren’t comfortable with. If you feel as though you have lots of knowledge in a particular area, then you can become a consultant yourself – and you can do it all from the comfort of your home. Take jobs such as expert networks, for example. You can rack up a healthy salary by having hour-long online meetings, discussing all you know regarding a particular sector of business. 

    Blogging

    Bloggers have wonderful setups – especially those who have ground away at this craft for a long time and can now have a real working schedule. Starting up a website and writing about something you care about for a living always seems like a made-up pipe dream. It can actually happen, though, if you genuinely try. From your home, you could create a mega brand that has subscribers and readers from all over the world. And it’s easy to create income from blogging with a small following, so you don’t have to stress a lot about followers and traffic.
