That Sentimental Feeling
I packed the camera already, so I thought I'd peek into the digital archives for today's photo. Thanks to Ann at Mommysecrets, I've been loading my memory card with 3 years of unprinted shots. She tipped me off to Kroger's upcoming digital photo sale, with 9-cent developing from digital media. I'm very good at developing and sending photos to relatives, but oh so bad about keeping hard copies for myself. I have a nice, plain set of archival albums in which to arrange the million-plus pictures I'm ordering. Instead of framing our favorites, we've been watching them as a constantly scrolling screensaver. (Besides having to dust all those frames, we try not to have personal photos anywhere when it comes time to sell a house.)
All in all, our basic digital camera has been one of our most frugal purchases to date. As new parents, we were bursting our budget with all those photos. We bought it for $100 at Best Buy's Black Friday sale. I love being able to edit down to the very best shot of a series. I love being able to take dozens of pictures so I can sometimes capture an image worth keeping.
