Terrific Teacher Finds

I HAVE to share my recent purchase with you.  It is one of those HAVE to have teacher tools that will help me when I work on school stuff at home.  I know you know the "at night, on the weekend, during the summer" school stuff I am talking about:-).
It is a laminator!  I got it at Wal-Mart for $27.   It was located in the office supply section, near the electric pencil sharpeners.
Here is a pic of the box:

And here is a picture of it in action:
Wal-Mart has laminating sheets.  There were 50 for $14 (I think), but Sam's Club has this box:

There were 200 sheets in the box for $21.  They are not the Scotch brand, but seem to work just as well as the Scotch ones.

Here is a little hint if you purchase one:  Hold down the power button for a few seconds to turn it on!

Well, I am off to cut things out until bedtime;-).

Link up your finds with Fun in Room 4B!

  4. I've been wanting one for awhile too. Glad to hear it's worth the investment! :)


  5. Oh my! Dangerous!!!!! I would have to hide that purchase from the hubby!!! We are lucky enough to have an office aide who laminates & then cuts out everything for us at school...and pretty much unlimited laminating, but I would still have WAY to much fun if I had a laminator of my own at home!
    We are now following you and would love it if you stop by sometime!

    1. BTW..crazy world, but we actually get in TROUBLE from our principal if we try to laminate things ourselves!!! She wants us to let the aide do it. I think we might sound a little spoiled after rereading this, but I promise we really work hard!!:)

    2. Wow! That is awesome! Can I send my stuff to you to laminate? LOL!

  6. Oh laminators are awesome! My parents got me one for my birthday. Man do I love that thing! Who would have thought how handy they would come in? Super glad I found you today. Cute blog!!! :)

    Reaching for the TOP!

  7. HI!! I am your newest follower. I would love to have you join my giveaway.


  8. That looks perfect! We have a small laminator that works for business card size stuff, but I would love a full size one. Thanks for sharing!


  9. What a great find! Thank you so much for linking up. I have a personal laminator myself but haven't used it yet. This gives me the courage to open it up and get busy!

    Thanks again for linking up!

  11. From one "plastic freak" to another . . . I couldn't help but follow you! I bought that laminator last month and used a whole pack of sleeves in less than 5 days. You're gonna love it. Glad I found you :)
