How big are you thinking? I made one out of a single sheet of plywood and some 2x4. It's 2' square and 3' tall and will hold at least 400 lbs of corn. wood was all laying around, but I bet I wouldn't have $50 in it. If you are thinking small bulk bin with an auger, they can be found around here on Craigslist for $200 to $500 depending on size. I picked up a 100 bu Brock on a farm sale for $125, but it needs some auger work.

I also made my own out of plywood. Works well here, might not if you live where it rains.
Mine is about 4 foot square (sloped bottom so the back is only about 2 foot tall).
If I remember right I made it for about $125.
Hold 1 ton of ground corn/supplement for my pigs.

Found a picture of it. Ignore the foreground and you can see the brightness of the plywood (back when it was relatively new a few years ago)next to the hog shed door.
The bin was elevated so that a 5 gallon bucket would fit over the spout but still low enough I could raise a 1 ton tote bag over it with the loader. Had steps on the one side so you could climb up and even get inside (steps there too) if you needed to.
