Laminating

Just a quick FYI - if you are planning to do workboxes (or the phonics flashcards, or Mary's montessori cards :), they require a good bit of laminating expense. Our local Sam's Club currently has in stock the Scotch 9" laminating machine for $17-25 (depending on the location). These are not large enough to laminate folders - but after doing a cost breakdown of the larger laminator - it is cheaper to go to a teacher supply store for that laminating (our local shop only charges 75 cents per foot). But, it is well worth the $25 to have your own laminator for all of the smaller items.

That's a great price. I have been so happy with my home machine. It has paid for itself many times over.
