LAMINATING AT HOME {My Favorite Things}

A Friend of the Clutter-Free Classroom Facebook Fan Page asked me to recommend a personal laminator. Since I LOVE mine I figured I would post about it. :)

At home I use the Scotch Thermal Laminator 2 Roller System (TL901) and highly recommend it. It's incredibly low cost (around $30.00), lightweight and small (so I can take it to school if I want to laminate during prep) and quality of the laminated product is excellent.

I owned a different laminator years ago. It needed a cardboard sleeve to prevent the laminating pouch from melting. I didn't care for that one at all.

I've had this one for several years now and have laminated hundreds of things with it. It will laminate up to 5ml, but I always just use Scotch Thermal Pouches 8.9 x 11.4 Inches, 100-Pack (TP3854-100) and find them to be very thick and study, but still easy enough to cut through when cutting out games for math workshop.
