Finding More Time to Paint, Free Art Supplies and Trader Joes?

Frequently I am asked how to find more time to paint. Do you wrestle with this time issue?  If so, consider one solution I have discovered which is to shop at Trader Joe's.  

Trader Joes sells many pre made or pre prepared items that will cut down the time you spend cooking and preparing meals. 

Did you know Trader Joes also gives away free art supplies? I repurposed their cookie jars into a watercolor brush cleaner. Note that it has a clean water holder inside and a larger round water holder outside to hold your dirty water. 

Dip your dirty brush in the outer container to clean it and into the inner container for clean water.
