budget laminating

contact paperi love laminating things we use in homeschool.
i can put in the work 1 time
and it will last over several uses
and sometimes several years.

however, a pack of 10 self-laminating pouches goes for $14.
what i do is use clear contact paper
— often used for lining drawers —
found in the kitchen aisle.

for around $4 i can get about 18 yards
which equals almost 60 self-laminating pouches.

  1. Thank you for this tip! I’ve been thinking I’d like more laminating capability, but it IS so expensive. It’s a shame to have to use some worksheets, etc. only once! Big Lots often has good prices on Contact paper, btw.
