Summary of this tutorial:

For this tutorial we will be using the Easy Custom Sidebars plugin:

With the plugin installed and activated you will want to visit Appearance, Theme Sidebars to create your custom sidebars.

Set a name for your sidebar that will help you remember what you are replacing and choose from the dropdown which sidebar to replace.

Also add the pages, posts, or other selections that you want this sidebar to appear on.

This will add a new location in your Appearance, Widgets area where you can add widgets for the selected places on your site.
