Turn and learn
My eagerness to laminate anything that didn't move was rapidly curtailed when I considered the cost of each lamination and the resulting storage implications of having an inordinate amount of display resources.
Having seen how quickly classroom displays were changed (in my PGCE course) and how certain core topics came up time and time again, I hit upon the idea of having resources for two different topics back to back on the same sheet, eg, dinosaurs on one and Romans on the other.
You save laminating sheets, storage space and time.
