Spray paint or regular paint for cheap?

Anybody know if paint sold at 100 yen stores is suitable for using on cardboard? And does anybody know if they have light blue and light green colors? I don't want to spend too much..

    Hi there! I don't think that 100 yen shops would have paint and if they do, it's probably for kids and/or not really good quality. Try Ko-nan. It's a great hardware type store with everything you can imagine for your home, and their prices are GREAT! I love browsing around there. Their things are generally much cheaper than Jusco. I would be surprised if they don't have paint. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure that Jusco has paint. I hope this helps, and good luck! :D Becky - www.trekkingwithhbecky.com Facebook - www.facebook.com/trekkingwithbecky Twitter - @trekkingbecky Instagram - @trekkingwithbecky

    I think Tokyo Hands also sell paint, it should cost between 500 ~ 800 yen.

    I just painted pumpkin seeds with y100 Daiso acrylic paint. It chipped off a bit and was icky; if you are handling that cardboard, the Y100 acrylic paint leaves residue on your hands every time you touch the painted surface. If you are not handling it and it's just for show, and then to throw, then Daiso Y100 might do the trick.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
