it's friday woohoo! and i have zero plans for tonight. i think i'll go home and spend a quiet evening along... it could be good. actually i'm thinking i might finally start to sort and scrap the photos from my trip to costa rica this past july. between the three of us we took 1400 pictures. i whittled that down to the 434 that i got printed. that means i got rid of almost 1000 pictures, but man it's still a ton to deal with.
having to print that many pictures, obviously i spent some time trying to figure out a cheap way to do it. it's not very interesting, but seeing as i dont really have anything else to talk about today, this is what you get. first i started looking at several online sites, like shutterfly, snapfish, etc. most were 12 cents a picture if you bought the cheap bulk plan, but the shipping charges were outrageous, $20 or more. then i looked into cvs, since there's a store just down the road. in their weekly ad it says pictures are 19 cents for one hour service or 15 cents if you dont mind waiting a few days. great! unfortunately, when i went in the store they were rude and told me they couldn't give me the 15 cents a picture deal, i'd have to come in on a weekday to talk to a manager. sorry, i work. so finally i tried walgreens, and surprise surprise, if you order online you can get them for 12cents each AND shipping was free if you order more than 100 pictures or something like that. so i am officially not printing pictures at CVS anytime in the forseeable future.
in other photo news, i made a photo book online using the pictures from my family's trip to albuquerque in october. i'm giving this to my mom for christmas. i ordered it a few days ago, so i'm hoping to get it next week. i've never done one of these before, so i'm keeping my fingers crossed that it looks great!
