Do you shop

If so, You Can Support this Site and it Costs You Nothing. Here's How:

If you can't afford to drop a few dollars in the Tip Jar to keep this site alive and growing, there's still a way you can help.

Click one of the Amazon product links on this page or throughout the site. You don't have to add it to your Amazon shopping cart.

Even if you buy a different product than the item you clicked on, when you browse Amazon and buy anything from (books, music, electronics, etc.), I get a small credit which helps to pay web hosting fees and other expenses. What's best of all, it doesn't cost you a penny more to buy what you were going to purchase, anyway... and you get to feel warm and fuzzy inside, knowing you helped.

I have placed links throughout the site (like the one below) to useful products that I recommend that are related to the content on those pages.

Featured Product

I have a lighted magnifying glass like this one, and it has been amazing to use! It makes details easy to see, and helps me to put the paint right where I want it.

To help support the continued creation of free articles, tips and tutorials, just click on one of this site's Amazon product links (like the one above) before you shop. Some have asked how they could more directly help support this site. To donate, please click the Donate button below.
