I can’t stress enough how much I love having a laminator. Do yourself a huge favor and get one.
The Scotch Laminator is another GREAT one to choose.
You will definitely be happy to have either of these on your counter. Think of all of those Montessori cards and printables you can laminate. 🙂
Here are just a couple of examples of activities/lessons that I’ve made using our laminator.
It’s important to have great pouches and these laminating pouches are totally worth the low price.

Snap or Velcro Poly Pocket Folders are a must for me.
Here you can see how mine look. I like to group mine by themes, where as each folder has a theme, This is our Solar System folder. I keep all of our Montessori cards and worksheets in one folder. That way each themes is ready to go. You can store these in a basket, a magazine box, a file box, or you can get these awesome Poly Envelopes that have the hole punches at the bottom for easy storage in a binder.
Best Electric Pencil Sharpener EVER (we have had ours for 15 years)
I am a HUGE fan of Brother products. We have used them for years and they last. I highly recommend color too, everything comes out so much prettier.
I suggest bookcases that you love, that work for you and your children.
