Morter- how much at a time

I'm ready to put some tile on a wall and floor. I've read that you only want to spread morter over an area that you can tile in 15 minutes. In my case that's not going to be a very large area. So is this all I mix at one time, or can I mix more, tile one area, and then tile another with the same batch of morter? How long can the mix stay in a bucket, and still be used? If I have to mix one small area at a time, I'll be mixing all the time.

In the bucket, the mortar should be workable for at least two hours, maybe more, but it depends on the temperature, humidity, and how much mortar is in the bucket.
