First, a quick intro. I've been lurking for awhile off and on and always find some great ideas here. I am married and have one child, I work full time and am in grad school part time. When we have child #2 (not ttc yet), I would like to leave my job and stay home with the kids and just finish school, so I am trying to plan ahead by finding frugal ways to live now and get in the habit, otherwise we will not be able to afford to consider this option.
I'm trying to curb my spending in all the non-essential areas of my life to see just how much money I can save without feeling totally deprived. Does anyone have good suggestions about where to get rolls of film developed? I have an APS camera (big frugal flop made 7 years ago, the darn film and developing are always more expensive. I was seduced by the novelty and the coolness factor at the time. LOL.), so any little bit saved is appreciated.
I've noticed tons of websites now about photo developing (Ofoto, etc.,), but I have no idea who is good, etc. I get very nervous about sending the rolls of film away~ once about 10 years ago I did that and they lost the roll, so it makes me anxious. (Even though I know my local CVS sends them out, too, but still, it feels more in control to me to drop them off and pick them up rather than mail them.) BUT, I need to think more about cost now, so I'd much rather save on each roll than drop them off my self.
Any tips would be appreciated.
