Save $ This Holiday Season

Happy Holidays and ho ho ho and all that good stuff!

Like you, I am always looking for money-saving ideas - more so lately with a son in college.

Here are a few ideas from the Web:

Nations Photo Lab is offering a big sale on 11x14-inch prints (on all types of paper) staring Monday, Dec 28th. Check their site for info.

Nik Software is having a Holiday Special: $170 off the Complete Collection Ultimate Edition and $100 off the Complete Collection for Lightroom and Aperture as well as 20% off new Nik Software products if you use this code - RSAMMON - upon checkout. Offer good until 12/31/09.

• If you want to expand your creative horizons with plug-ins, you can also get discounts on plugs-in from onOneSoftware , Photomatix, Lucis and Alien Skin at the Plug-in experience.

For $ saving tips on travel, check out my pal Peter Greenberg's site. Look for "Today's top deals."

Happy New Year! It will be here before we know it!
