Last year I spent $272 on Christmas pics...this year I'm taking them myself!

Then ordering them through Walmart for .33 cents each! That's around $16.00 for 50 cards!
How much do you spend on Christmas pics?

  • I always take them myself. I used to go to the mall and have them done, but I was never really happy. Now, all year I keep in mind that I need a great one for our cards. Whenever I have a camera and the 3 kids together I take a few. This year I took it on the beach in the summer. It's really great. I made our cards at Shutterfly and ordered them yesterday. I spent $70 on 75 cards. I had free shipping and free 25 cards if you buy 50. I also had 20% off.

  • I did the walmart ones last year. I also use the walmart cards for birthday party thank yous. One year I took pic of all kids behind cake table, another year i took a pic of all girls together in their jammies. Their is no min. order at walmart so for about $3 i had a cute thank you and in the typed part it just said Thank you for celebrating my bday with me and my dd's name. The kids loved a keepsake from the party! Just FYI...

  • I also did the walmart greeting card thing for the past 3 Christmases. And I will most likely do it this year too. It works out great and it's inexpensive. I used to always get my 4 yo old's pics professionally done, (at JCPenney or Sears) then when I had my 14 mo old, that was out of the question. We just recently had our family pics done at walmart's portrait studio and they came out fab!

  • We also take our own. My SIL works for a printing company so she does ours on the side!

  • I've taken my own for years. I buy Kodak picture paper and print them out myself too. It's a bit more time consuming, but it saves me a little more money and I actually kind of have fun with it.

  • I used to go to JC Penneys. They had a coupon for 50% off on the Entertainment Books. I am not sure if they have one this year. But he is so big I really do not want to do that anymore. There are some moms that still send some of their much older children. It is something I look forward to getting in the mail.
