Calling all composters!

Does anyone save their food scraps and compost them? This is something I've been wanting to do for a while. We go through enough coffee grinds, fruit and veggie scraps, and egg shells to do this. We already recycle pretty much everything, so pretty much all we throw out are these kinds of things and paper products (used paper towels and plates, etc.)

Any bins that I've seen are huge, and expensive. I saw this one on a tv show once, meant to keep under your kitchen sink, it's a little more my speed. I want to start small. I don't even know how much this one is, I think I looked it up one time and I remember it seeming expensive. I don't want anything really high maintenance just yet.

If any of you guys do this, is there anything you can recommend? We don't even "garden" alot, I just hate throwing away things I know can have a use for something else. I figure if I don't use it I can always give it away to someone who does. What do I need/need to know to get started? Do I have to get some worms? I don't really know much about it and I want to hear from people who do this.
