Default 5 Gallon bucket vs paint tray

I have a lot of interior painting to do in my home. I am thinking of buying a 5 gallon bucket and a grid because I think I would prefer that over a paint tray.

Several of the rooms are on the small side and I would only need one gallon of paint.

My question is - would this be too little paint for using a 5 gallon bucket/grid? If so, what it the minimum amount of paint to make the 5 gallon idea workable?

Thank you
