The link bellow is for a supplier in Texas but if you can't get them any closer try them.  I'm in Gainesville, Fl. and I will buy from them unleas i can  find a closer supplier.

Check Craigslist under IBC totes, water tanks, etc.  I even found some listed under "pallets".  You never know...

About the IBC Totes, check Harbor Freight, I just found 200 gallon ones at the store near me for $75.00, new blue rain barrels 55 gal for $20, worth the shot.
