Wow, you guys have gotten some deals! That is awesome!

I have tried all kinds of albums in the past! Here is a rundown of my experiences:

My first album ever was Creative Memories (a strap hinge) and I really wasn't much of a fan of that. I really liked how it worked to add pages - but I wasn't a fan of the fact that I was paying so much for the refill pages that I was always covering up with paper. The one bonus that I did have with that was that I had over 100 pages (50 pages, both sides done) in the album. It was a lot!

My second album, and third, fourth, etc. were the post bound albums. These were more economical for me because I just added my pages right in the page protectors. It worked well for awhile for me when I had cheaper albums. If I needed more room I would just open up the side and add more posts. But I soon discovered that not all albums will take the same sized page protectors - so you have to be careful in that regard. Also, I bought a Pioneer album for Micah's baby album which I love - but for some reason it doesn't really like to accept extra posts. It is just so akward to deal with!

My latest album is a D ring binder. It is not as exciting on the front - it has a brown binding and the rest is chipboard so that you can decorate it yourself. I don't think that anything I decorated with would stay on, though. So I think I will just leave it as the chipboard. I just bought it on Saturday but so far I like it beause it will fit any sized page protector that I want, AND I don't have to deal with posts. If I want to add more pages, I just open it up and go! I guess the downside to this kind of thing is that they aren't as attractive - but I think you CAN buy some that have nice covers. We just didn't have any in the store that day!

WOw, that was a huge long novel. Hope that helped!!
