The wonderful Sabra from Teaching with a Touch of Twang is hosting a new linky party called Must Have Monday!! Isn't her linky button by Michelle at 3AM Teacher adorable?
Sabra's new linky is where you link up and find ideas from other teachers that you can't live without in your classroom or ordinary life!
I had a little blogging break this past weekend while I was trying to get my house back in order and babying my little girl as much as possible after her surgery. I saw this linky today and thought, "I know just what I can't live without this year!"
This might not be something most of you haven't thought of, but it was the first "MUST HAVE" that came to my mind! With my task cards and Daily 5 craze this year, I couldn't live without my best investment last summer...my Scotch Laminator!
Here she is in all her glory at school after being used quite a bit today.
I think I need to give her a name:)
Seriously! I am on my 4th box of 200 laminating sheets since August!
The box of 200 is only $20 at Sam's Club and the laminator itself was about $30.
It is worth EVERY penny!
Check out the new items I just laminated.

Here is a pile of future laminating that I have waiting on my counter!
If you are on the fence about purchasing a personal laminator, I encourage you to take the plunge. There is no more waiting on supplies from your school, going in on the weekends, etc. The only downfall is I can't laminate large items, but that hasn't been on my to-do list this year anyway. Now I can laminate any time I want from the comfort of my home!
