Shutterfly Book

For a long time I have been wanting to make a baby book for Hudson, especially since now I need to get cracking on one for  Cooper. I started a traditional scrapbook, but I honestly found it hard to take everything out, clean it up, and get started day after day. I decided to do a digital book because there is no mess and I love the idea of being able to print out multiple books for gifts or whatever.

I was going to wait to do a post on Hudson's book until I had it in my hands, but since right now there is a sale on at Shutterfly I figured I would do a post and share what I did to get an even better deal in case anyone out there wants to save a few bucks.

*Warning*...Doing these photo books CAN take a lot of time depending on how detailed you want it.

Right now(and often) Shutterfly has great sales on their books. I started mine a few months ago but just got around to printing it. Since I had added so many pages to my book it was going to cost me around 60 bucks plus shipping(?70 bucks).
The book that I wanted went on sale 30 percent off, so with shipping it was going to cost me around 50 bucks.
Then(here is where it gets awesome) I found an online coupon for 20 dollars off here.  (there are a couple other great coupons there too).The coupon for 20 dollars off cost 2 dollars and doesn't expire until the end of the year. I was not sure if it would work, but it did, making my book(approx 50 pages) with shipping under 30 dollars. I figured with all of the customization and hard cover ect. that that was a great deal. It was a lot of fun to do. I wanted an 8.5x11 book, but for only a couple dollars more you could can get a 12x12(as they are 50% off). Just printing off the photos (almost 200 pictures)and buying an album for them all to fit in would cost more than one of these books(and not be as fun).

Now all I have to do is sit back and wait for it to get here! I am sooo excited to see it in person.
