If you have a food-vacuum device like the FoodSaver, you’ll get a lot more life from your partially used cans and tubes of finish and glue. The sealed bags prevent fresh air from reaching the finishes and adhesives, greatly slowing their curing rate in the container. The bags are cheap and the device works quickly, so you can repeat the process whenever you need to.
