Save money on paint brushes by purchasing quality brushes and taking care of them so they will last a long time.  Clean your brushes when you are done with them by washing them in the sink or putting them in a bucket of water with a little liquid fabric softener.  After they are thoroughly clean, hang them upside down to dry.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some more frugal tips to save money on paint brushes.

 

- Buy inexpensive paint brushes when you do not want to clean them, as might be the case with a paint that isn't water based.
 
- When taking a break from painting for a few hours, wrap the brush in cellophane.
 
- Store your paint brushes with the bristles hanging down so they don't lose their shape.
