Never buy a bucket
Coffee cans, large juice cans, or gallon food cans or containers can be used for small buckets. Use a hammer and nail to punch holes exactly opposite each other, then insert wire, rope or heavy twine for a bail (handle). You might get lucky and find a larger container; otherwise, ask at restaurants or grocery stores for any large plastic buckets or containers. You may have to wait awhile before they are ready to throw one out, and not all stores do, so ask around. Don't forget the large ice cream buckets! They're a little flimsy, but will work for some things.
