Storing paint leftovers

This is how I store paint leftovers

I hate storing paint leftovers in the original, drip-covered can. It's ugly, the container takes up too much room, the paint dries up and even if I write the name of the colour on the can, I have to open it up to make sure it contains the paint I need to touch up that banged up wall. My solution is to transfer the paint to a Mason jar with a tight lid. I can see the colour its filled with and I can dip the paint brush in it easily. Sure, it would be a mess if it suddenly got smashed on the floor, but I'll take my chances. I also think it looks pretty nifty!
