We TRANSFORMED this Little Tikes Table with SPRAY PAINT

We started with a Little Tikes table, some Rustoleum spray paint, and a DREAM! We had some family friends give us a Little Tikes table.

We then began the process of using Rustoleum Spray PaintContinue reading “We TRANSFORMED this Little Tikes Table with SPRAY PAINT”

Saving Money by Cutting my Own Grass?

As the summer comes to a close, I am reminiscing on cutting grass…because I am bored? Anyways, I have cut my own grass since I was a wee tot cutting my parent’s grass with a push mower (it wasn’t even a self-propelled mower, and conveniently after I moved out they bought a riding lawnmower…interesting).

Retail Arbitrage…How Does It Work? – Thought

Back in my day (way back in 2012) the rapper Macklemore taught us all about “popping tags” in his hit song “Thrift Shop”. Retail Arbitrage is a form of that same bargain shopping that Macklemore was talking about, and it is almost as much fun to say as “popping tags”. All jokes aside devoted reader,Continue reading “Retail Arbitrage…How Does It Work? – Thought”


You’re wondering who I am…Yeah, the “Mechanical Turk” is not a robot like that… In one of my past posts, I mentioned the saying “Is the Juice Worth the Squeeze?“, and that expression will be very valid with evaluating this program. I looked very seriously at Amazon’s Mechanical Turk program in the past, and IContinue reading “DOMO ARIGATO MR…MECHANICAL TURK? – THOUGHTS”

What is the BEST SPRAYPAINT for DIY WOOD Projects? – Review

Two spray paints enter….one spray paint leaves… Whenever a project needs “sprucing up”, my wife uses spraypaint to update the “look” cheaply and efficiently. Recently, she decided to test two different brands to see which performed better. Those brands are Krylon and Rust-Oleum.
