You can check out my original archiving question in THIS post.
After receiving advice and input, I was planning to just use the originals. I didn't want to worry too much and I'd always have scans (however lousy) as back-up to remember. However, they're still sitting in a stack on my desk because life got in the way and I've moved on to other things.
Then, I read about this site: http://www.scancafe.com/photoscanning.php that scans them in for you and it seems like a fairly reasonable price. But, it would still be over $50 USD - probably more like $100 ... do you think it's worth it?
I really do hope to start soon, but I've got my travel album to finish for my anniversary (March 23rd), two mini-books for wedding gifts, one for the mini-album swap, two cards, my kids' baby albums, an gift for my parents' 50th (March 10th) ... the list goes on and on of the things I want to accomplish.
