If A Girl Buys a Laminator...

If a girl buys a laminator, chances are she'll feel the need to also buy a pack of 50 laminating pouches to go along with it.

And if she buys 50 pouches, chances are she'll feel the need to print off everything possible in order to fill those pouches.

And if she prints off everything possible, chances are that her printer will begin to despise her and decide that it's time to run out of ink.

And if she runs out of ink, chances are that she'll head over to Amazon and start looking around for the refill cartridges for her printer.

And if she gets on Amazon and starts searching, chances are that she'll end up with way more in her cart than she planned for {all for the sake of free shipping} including an additional set of laminating pouches.

And if she has additional laminating pouches to fill....




  • Fantastic post! You could be writing about me! And, I love the Laura Numeroff twist.

  • Ok and if that girl has a laminator that turned out too hot for the 5m sheet and it wraps itself around said roller inside - what does the girl do now with over 100 things left to laminate????

    Love and blessings from a girl who understands!

  • Oh, I didn't think to look at Amazon for laminator pouches. Hmmmm...what else can I order?

  • It always seems to work like that doesn't it! Haha, I love Amazon! My whole family does. There is a reason it well worth it to us to have a Prime Membership!

  • Hilarious! I can so relate...except, you know, I don't have a laminating machine.

  • I don't have a laminator...yet and I've never bought anything off of Amazon....yet. BUT, I can relate to the printer ink. My husband always gives me weird looks whenever we are at the store and I tell him we need to go to the computer section to get ink. He's like, "Already!?" He's very supportive though because he knows how important it is to me. Great post, loved it!

  • I love this and can totally relate. A friend of mine bought one for me for Christmas and I've been finding things to laminate ever since!!

  • I know you don't know me. I've been following your blog the last couple weeks and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I left you a little something on my blog:
    Have a great day.

  • Hello,

    I'm new here and thoroughly enjoyed your blog today for an earlier search topic. I then began a search for a laminator and found you. Can you recommend yours? What brand is it? Do you like it? Is it good for a newbie like me?

  • I picked up a Scotch TL901 Thermal laminator. The link below is to one on Amazon so you can see what it looks like, but I ended up buying it from Walmart. Target also carries them {they run between $25-$30 at either of those places}.

    Hope that helps you out – they were in the office supply section of both of the stores. :)

    Super easy to use - just make sure you by an extra refill pack of the laminating sheets, since it only comes with 2 in the box!

  • Thank you, I think I'm going to jump on the bandwagon!

    Have a great Saturday,

  • Though I have refrained from giving a mouse a cookie, I am not sure that I can refrain from getting a laminator.

    Wonderful rhyme. Thank you so much for sharing.
