Polypropylene barrels?

You can sometimes get them from a carwash or a cola bottling plant.

Check this out. I don't know if it qualifies as cheap but it sure looks nice.
Tamco® Self Supporting Polyethylene Tanks With Spigots - US Plastic Corporation
And you can see the set up ( well, at least the way it looks ) here
Not mine though.

Another place is to find out where your school busses are washed. I paid $10 each for my 55 gallon drums, they came from a school bus wash rack........DC

I have family in St. Croix. I am sure they would pick some up and hold them if I asked.
