Great pointer, dsrtrat,
x2 - Sherwin Williams uses really nice buckets. The plastic seems to be durable and resilient (not brittle) and they're standard-sized and don't stick in other standard-sized buckets.
If you know any commercial painters, they usually throw the buckets away after a job. Latex paint peels out easily.
