How to make my printer wireless using bluetooth

Hello,
I am trying to figure out how to make my Samsung Laser Printer wireless. I have one at the office and one at home and I have two laptops so it is a pain (I know, real difficult) moving the cord in and out of each in order to print.

I have tried to look into a wireless network, but can't determine if I need a stationary computer running all the time, which I wouldn't want to do.

I have tried looking into bluetooth, but I have heard, though can't confirm, that the bluetooth will not work on my printer.

Any suggestions? Oh, and I am cheap, so I only have about $40 to $50 to throw at making both home and the office wireless.

Thank you for any help you may have.

What is the model number of your Samsung printer? It's possible that it's got built in wireless or bluetooth but probably unlikely. You can buy a device called a print server for between $20-$150 that will allow a regular printer to become wireless.
