What a deal!

Lately we have been saving our pennies to help finance our ever growing adoption expenses. The state of the economy doesn't help the situation, either. So, my ears perked up when I heard this story on NPR. I'm off and on with coupons but I never can find the best deals (using a coupon on top of an in-store-special). My mom swears by Walgreens and their freebie deals, she has a bathroom full of goodies to prove it. Unfortunately, we don't have Walgreens around these parts. Anyhoo, the woman interviewed in the story has an awesome blog where she has great tips on deals and steals, something all of us could use right about now. I also checked out coupons.com which allows you to print free coupons at home eliminating the whole sorting through the newspaper part of the deal. Pretty cool.

Since I hate to post without a photo, here's a webcam shot while I type this...

A lot of places won't accept the self printed coupons anymore. Too much fraud.

Here's a random question for you as a photographer: do you use a particular site to print your digital photos..?

I'm having the darndest time finding a quality printer - used Snapfish for a while, but was continually disappointed. I just signed up for Shutterfly & got 50 free prints (a nice deal, I'd say) & look forward to seeing the results..

I'm going to try my home printed coupons today. I'll keep you posted on how it goes!

Chelsea,

I have started using Mpix.com because I was constantly disappointed as well. I printed a test photo at lots of different places and found that the quality at Mpix was the best I could find. It costs a little more but its worth it to me that my photos are the best they can be.
