Thanks for the kind comments everyone. I definately will be doing more smaller watercolors, but instead of filling sketchbooks, I want to devote my time to larger watercolors that have some meaning (if only to me). I still have four pages left in weather journal, and am trying to be motivated to finish that. Jana, here is my palette. It's a cheap plastic one about 12x10". I do not squeeze out a standard palette each time (I don't know what that is). I just squeeze out paint as I need it. I do not rinse away old paint unless it's really dusty and crumbly, or if I need that space for a new color. ( I'm basically messy and/or lazy). I always keep my colors in these places, since I am very used to them that way. When I'm working on a large piece, I will mix some color up in one of those small containers that you put salsa or radishes in at Mexican take out restaurants.
