Equipment Needed / Helpful Tools

  • Printer: This one is a great budget printer. If you’re willing to spend just a little more though, this is a better option. And if you’re looking for an all-in-one home office machine, this one does it all, has high reviews and includes 2 years of ink.
  • Printer paper or cardstock: If you’re printing for one-time, quick use, print on regular printer paper. If you need the printout to hold up to being handled often or if you plan to laminate it to use it multiple times, choose cardstock.
  • Laminator: Laminating your printable is an inexpensive way to use it multiple times. Just use dry erase markers and wipe off when you’re done so you can use it again!  Alternately, you can cover the printable with clear contact paper to achieve the same thing.

  1. Thank you, you have such great ideas! Though I am also wondering why there is such a runaround to get them? I’m found your site over the summer and loved it so I signed up for your email list but it makes me re-sign up with my email (which I already get) and I still do not have access. Is there any easier way to access these files? I’m so ready to give up.

  2. Thank you, placemats are a great idea!
    However why is there such a runaround to get them? I’m on your email list already which is where I saw the placemats, so I clicked through to get them, but it makes me re-sign up with my email, which I already get, and then after I do that it takes me to the beginning and the files I’m looking for are not obviously just sitting there, I have to search and find them. So I give up…..

    • In that email where you saw the placemats, if you click on the link for “Thanksgiving Placemats” you will be taken directly to the placemats that you can download and print.
