We recently purchased two blue food grade barrels from a farmers' co-op for $20 each. Add on the cost of a good brass spigot at $6 and a roll of screen for $4 and we have 2 55 gallon rain barrels for under $60.

Rainwater harvesting: Rain Barrel DIY. My hubby already bought a barrel just like this so I just need to get the components and have him make this! Should be cheaper than the $85 price tag for one put together.
