Philip: as stated by several look for "opps" paint. locally lowes it is $5/gal. or if your lucky $25/5 gal. home depot is $7/gal. real deals is often $1/quart. ..the best deal I got was at lowes, Valspar premium with the original $40 tag for $5 less 5% contractor discount less a $5 rebate, they paid me 25 cents to take it, a great light blue color. last summer real deals had krylon exterior white stain killer for $1/quart they had a lot of it for a while. the stain killer is great for fixing up old boxes.... you do not have to equate low price with low quality.... this time of year the opps paint is scarce. be patient and keep your eyes open.
