I buy a roll of parchment paper and use it to line my cake pans when baking layer cakes. No need to grease the pan.
I save all the wrappers from sticks of butter and keep them in a zipper bag in my freezer. When you need to butter a cake pan or casserole dish, just take one out.
To butter your baking pans easily, and with less mess, use a frozen stick of butter. Just unwrap the end of the stick and run it around your pan.

I do a lot of baking and make all my own bread. For greasing pans, I keep a container half full with shortening and I keep a small plastic baggy inside.
If you are making a recipe that requires you to grease the pan and one of the ingredients is oleo (margarine). I grease the pan with the oleo wrapper.
When preparing a pan for baking and the recipe calls to grease and flour the pan, save your butter paper when you unwrap butter
