Ideas for alternative tack trunk?

I need a tack trunk, but can't afford to buy a new one and haven't been able to find a used one in my price range (under $100). Does anyone have any ideas about utilizing some other kind of container for tack?

Contico Portable Storage Locker with Wheels -
Hard plastic, doesn't rust, doesn't rot, can be reused later on if you can afford a prettier one, later. =D

I have one of these

I love it! I also use basic storage totes and one plastic 2 drawer storage unit.

Yep, Walmart, Home Depot & Lowe's all sell plastic trunks that are perfect! Look near the tool boxes. Many even have wheels & interior trays (aka brush boxes,) if that's important to you.

Shop Blue Hawk 30.5-in Black Plastic Tool Box at might work. Lowes employees get 10% discount. I think active military or certain retired or discharged military get 10%. But they have to show the right kind of ID. Look at if you think someone you know might be eligible.

5% off for Lowes credit card purchases
A 10% discount to all veterans during Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veterans Day weekends; and a 10% discount every day to all active, reserve, retired and disabled veterans who carry a valid, military-issued photo ID card.
But call the store and ask what qualifies as a valid ID, because I think they changed the policy. Or maybe "active, reserve, retired and disabled" and/or photo ID was the change. I just know that there was some change that ticked people off.

This is hands down my favorite "tack trunk". They are incredibly durable, lightweight, have a pull out handle/wheels so it's very easy to move around, and a tray inside where you can keep things. And when they get really dirty you can just hose them out. I see the all the time at shows, even the big fancy ones. Best thing is that they're only $70 (from Home Depot). I've had mine for about 7 or 8 years and other then a few scuffs its still in great condition.

Thanks to all who gave me great suggestions. I'm off to the local Home Depot right after work today!
