Paint is expensive!

Painting my shops exterior, and boy does the price start adding up fast! I bet I'll use $400 worth of paint by the time I'm done.

Now there's also some Jewish trickery going on here also, and I'll explain:

Way back a long time ago, paint here came in 4.5 liter cans, which is one Canadian gallon.
Then it switched to 3.78 liter cans, which is one US gallon, and is generally the standard for paint cans here.
But low and behold Benjamin Moore is now using 3.5 liter cans... 3.5 liters isn't equivalent to any other methods of measurement. They just made the cans smaller to sell you less for the same price.

Jewish trickery for sure!

Ours is still a gallon, but very high.
I think the last gallon I bought was $65.
Hell when I was a kid I bought paint for $5, sometimes cheaper, $3 is what I saw my dad buy it for at times, and $2.50.

I have three rooms needing painted, been wanting to try the last three years,, but not been able.
I have to strip some wallpaper border off also, and prep the walls which is a pain.
