Using AlgebraicRules

I'm using Mathmatica's AlgebraicRules to define an extensive set of transformation rules and variables. I'm then applying this set of rules to various expressions. I then want to apply the same set of transformation rules to a different set of expressions at a later time. Running AlgebraicRules[eqns, vars] to set up the transformation rules takes a lot of time because of the large number of transformation rules. Right now I'm having to run AlgebraicRules every time I begin a Mathematica session. Is there a way to either save the set of transformation rules so that I can apply them to new expressions later without rerunning AlgebraicRules or are there tricks to setting up AlgebraicRules so that it runs faster? Thanks--Justin
