Cheap paper for watercolor practice?

Are there any no-hassle, cheap alternatives to watercolor paper? I want to practice a lot without spending a lot.

I'd like to practice watercolor painting regularly (every day, ideally), but I'm reluctant to pay a lot for watercolor paper.
I'm even more reluctant to go through the process of stretching my own paper. (Lack of hassle is much more important than cost. I want to just be able to grab my supplies and start painting.)
Are there any cheap alternatives to watercolor paper that won't leave me sad and disappointed at the results?
If not, what watercolor paper do you recommend for someone who wants to practice a lot?
