You’re never alone on a painting project if you have this little wonder at your side. The tool functions like an extra pair of hands. It’s a carrying handle for containers, a can hook for your ladder, and a brush clip that attaches to your roller tray. Well, it’s equally indispensable off the job site too! Take it with you whenever you're heading out for supplies. From the hardware store to the garden center to the burger joint, the Painter’s Assistant will comfortably hold all those plastic shopping bags that would otherwise cut into your fingers. Available at Home Depot; $5.95.
