I've been going through a lot of glue lately and noticing that about 1/3 of the glue dry out before I can finish a project. Tired of wasting, I started to search for a convenient way to keep it reusable once it's out of the bottle. I would also need the solution to be portable so I can pack up and take it to workshops without making a mess.
After some trials, the no-spill paint cup worked the best. The cup comes with a flap that conveniently opens and closes for easy access. Once you open the flap, the opening is wide enough to dab the glue without making too much mess. (I use a cotton swab for this.) However, the cup was slightly larger and deeper than I wanted. To fix that, I inserted a layer of plastic food wrap and pushed it about 2/3 way down. This step elevated the glue from the bottom while protecting it from sticking to the inner surface, in case it does dry up. It also made cleaning very easy since you can just toss away the inside wrap when you're done with things.
