Since I had kids, I feel like I'm on the treadmill always trying to get organized, but it never seems to happen. I love to have apps for my smartphone where I can check off my to-do list, but sometimes I just need to use a pen and paper. However, I don't like the waste that happens from pen and paper, and I wanted a system that I could reuse.
So, I was happy to try out the Fellowes Saturn 2 95 Laminator. I could envision all the possibilities for Back to School projects…plus, I thought this was my opportunity to create an organization system.
As you can see, I've taken a small first step by printing out a weekly menu plan and some job charts for my boys and laminating them for reuse. I can't wait to get some pens to use on them!

Review of the Laminator
It took me just a few minutes to pull the laminator out of the box and quickly read through the directions. You can choose to do either cold or hot lamination. I set up the machine for hot lamination and added my documents to the laminating sleeves. It takes about 5 minutes to heat up, and then I was ready to get to work.
I slowly inserted the first document into the machine and it took about a minute to feed through and emerge fully laminated. I was very excited to see the quality of the lamination – there were no bubbles and it felt heavy duty. Although the machine does get hot, it's not dangerously hot on the outside, so you could use it to do a project with your child.
I did have issues with 3 out of the 4 sheets bending on the insertion end, but I was able to feed them back through the opposite way and they straightened out. I'm not sure what happened, but I did have my document centered, so it was part of the laminating margin that got bent. I could have also just trimmed off the excess and gotten rid of it too.
All in all, I'm very happy with the machine, and I can't wait to use it on all kinds of projects this year.
