Works for Me Wednesday: Keep in Touch

I take pictures of the boys. Lots and lots of pictures. Nathan and I each have grandparents that like to see those pictures, but they don't have access to computers. Costco Photo Center to the rescue! Costco has the cheapest prices per print (17 cents) that we've found, plus FREE shipping - no matter where the pictures are going, and no matter how many prints you've ordered. It makes it super easy to pick 10 or 15 pictures a month and send them off to grandma - no running to the store, no looking for stamps and no worrying about having appropriate sized envelopes on hand. It works for me! (as a sidenote: it's a lifesaver for me to be able to order or re-order whichever prints I want without ever leaving my home and having them come straight to me. I don't scrapbook, but it sure makes keeping photo albums up-to-date a piece of cake!) Get more great ideas at Shannon's, the Works for Me Wednesday Home!

Awesome idea!!! I really need to do that for my sister-in-law in Colorado.

We don't have a Costco here, but if you do online photo developing, Winkflash.com has 12 cents per print with 99 cent shipping. It's the most economical I've found yet.

We have a Costco and I agree, their prints are cheap and their gift selections are great too.

Love Costco!!!

Man, I miss Costco! We actually use Sam's Club for the same thing. I have gotten some beautiful pictures from there!
