Sketchbook Pages: Leftover Paint

When I'm painting, I tend to err on the side of caution and squeeze out / mix up more paint than I need. Instead of letting it go to waste by drying up on my freezer-paper-palette, I usually smear it into one of my sketchbooks (using a brush or my fingers). The theory is that I'll go back and add to these pages - the reality? I kind of love them as is:
They remind me of colour palettes that I've used and might try again (like the red, orange and blue-green in the last one).

What do you do with your leftover paint?
