I’m going to vent about the seemingly-universal practice of paint and hardware stores (both big-box and local) that paint can be sold in no unit smaller than a quart.

Now I have 31.999-recurring ounces of white paint to store. That’s about $13.20 of the $13.27 cost sitting around getting crusty and old.
