Another Favorite Item...

If your school is like mine you probably have certain days you can laminate, which can be a pain if you need something on the fly. Well, I'm the Queen of living on the fly, so it can be a problem for me! This year we got some money for our classrooms from our Boosterthon fundraiser, so what did I buy? Yep, that's right. I got a laminator for my classroom! Here it is:
It is a Scotch brand 2 roller laminator. I got it at Target and paid $26. ($28.99, used my RedCard and saved 5%). Then it also had a $10 mail in rebate, so the total cost for it ends up being about $17. You can't beat it. It is GREAT. It uses the pouches, which I wasn't so sure about at first, but now that I'm used to them I love them. The pouches run about $16 for 50 (9x11 size) in the store. But, if you buy on Amazon you can get 100 pouches for around $14. It's a small price to pay for convenience in my opinion.

 It laminates 3mil for standard paper and 5mil for cardstock. Another plus is that you can actually cut your laminated item (like for puzzles or match up games) without it coming apart. It has been a fantastic investment. LOVE my laminator!
