Hello Stephanie,

What I usually do is the direct sequencing of my PCR product using the "fmol 
sequencing kit" of Promega. Its relatively cheap and very easy to perform. You 
just need to kinase your primer. Everything is within the kit.
If my PCR product is not pure enough, I purify it on agarose gel and extract 
the fragment with Qiaex or Geneclean stuff.

Good luck
