El Paso, Texas (NAPSI) - Good news for today’s busy families: An increasing number of companies now offer products and services that make shopping more affordable and convenient, using new technologies and home delivery systems to redefine the way people get groceries, rent movies and even shave.

These services offer you the peace of mind that you’ll have what you need, before you need it, without having to run another errand or even make a phone call.

Home delivery has become the standard for how Americans buy and receive products. Now, this idea also applies to the home printer. Replacing printer ink is now another chore to permanently cross off the list as ink can be delivered to the doorsteps of users before they run out. Perhaps the best part is this convenient service can actually save you up to 50 percent on ink.

Gone are the late night runs to the store when you run out of printer ink as your favorite procrastinator is finishing a book report due the next morning. With the HP Instant Ink service, your eligible printer tells HP when it’s running low on ink and replacement cartridges are delivered to your door before you run out. Because plans count printed pages and not the amount of ink used, you can print high-quality color photos or black-and-white documents, all for the same cost.

The service works with one of several new HP Instant Ink-enabled printers and uses larger than normal ink cartridges—included in the service is the ink, shipping and cartridge recycling. You can also change or cancel plans online anytime. This efficiency, combined with fewer trips to the store to purchase new cartridges, results in a 60 percent reduction in carbon footprint.

From printing that grade school book report or high school research paper, to last-minute permission slips and everything in between, this can be a simple solution that can save you time, money and headaches.
