I like being able to pick out my pictures, print them, then do the layout without having a ton of extra pictures I won't use. I know I could probably do the same thing at the store, using a memory card, but I prefer to print as I create. I like being able to fix, enlarge or downsize, re-color (or black&white) my pictures to suit my layouts too! Its mostly a personal preference for me.
These are my sentiments as well. I don't live in a rural area, and the nearest place to print pictures is only 5 minutes away, but I love the convenience of being able to print whatever size I want at home (and sometimes more economical since stores charge crazy amounts for odd sized pictures or if I make a mistake or two and have to reprint the same picture a couple times). I just recently bought a wide format printer so I'll also be able to print some of my digital scrapbook papers at home. Its very exciting.
