Awhile back I bought the Veritas Press History Cards to use in our homeschooling. These are not cheap, however I got mine for about $15 out-of-pocket NEW on Amazon because I had enough Amazon credit in gift card codes to take care of the rest. Part of my codes came from a contest I won, but I also regularly earn Amazon gift card codes for free by using the Swagbucks search engine (use it like you do Google- except Swagbucks pays  you!). Here’s a post I wrote about how to earn from Swagbucks.

Okay, so without  my free Amazon money these cards would have been around $100 for all 5 sets of the cards by themselves. To make sure my investment lasted in nice fashion from being handled by the kids I would…laminate them like other parents. To keep them organized I would likely punch holes in the corner and slip them on a key-ring. I had done none of that and we weren’t regularly using the cards.

Then I read from a blogger (and I can’t find her blog right now) about these binders and matching sized page protectors available online from I checked that website and then checked Amazon and couldn’t find anything better there so I bought them. You can compare‘s prices with Amazon’s listing for Avery Heavyweight Sheet Protectors, 5.5 x 8.5 Inches, Pack of 15 (77007).

Now watch my vlog below for the rest of the story.
