Dollar Stores have all kinds of baskets and containers. My fav are the plastic coated wire mesh flat baskets and trash cans. Wire trash cans with plastic coating can be upended over transplants for part shade until the transplants are acclimated.
Depending on the dollar store you visit, they may have many items specific for the garden and sometimes seeds and/or bulbs. I've had success with ordinary seeds like marigolds, alyssum, radishes, lettuce, larkspur and the like. Bulbs vary, lately they've been smaller and fewer, but I've had good luck in the past with daffodils, gladioli and freesias. I've found bone meal in the dollar store, and some wonderful garden stakes.
Skip the cheap garden tools, like trowels, they bend at first use.
