I am a film user too and am thinking of whether scanning my negatives into CD is a better alternative.
I have been reading other posts regarding the noise in the digital scans and the adjustments made to the pictures. It seems that the images on the CD are pretty bad representations of the actual quality of the picture, not to mention that if I want to print them out myself at home, they would look like crap. Uploading these to my portfolio online would definately be a no-no too.
When I was a beginner, I would be happy if 10 pictures out of a roll of 36 turned out good. But this would also mean that $6-$8 would be spend on unwanted prints per roll. Having better "picture sense" and being more consistent now, 20-30 good prints per roll of 36 shouldn't be a problem. So it would be around $2-$5 on unwanted prints, which is cheaper than the costs for scanning and sending the good ones for prints.
