Default Cooling equipment

I'm trying to find a very cheap option to cool my beer, mostly because i am leaving my country after this summer and what ever i buy will only be used a few times. So my budget is around £10-£15

I've tried putting my fermenters into double binbags and filling them with water and ice bottles, but the water leaked out. tried tying a double knot in the bonded end of the bags, still leaked out somehow... right now i have it in these bin bags with no water and just as many frozen water bottles as I could but its still around 23*C :/

I've looked for cool bags/boxes but can not find anything big enough, am now looking for a regular plastic box that can be big enough although no luck yet, or considering to use a polystyrene box but i fear it might also leak....

does anyone have any suggestions? To be honest I really dont get why it is so bloody hard for me to find a water proof bin bag... but anyway

Can you get these in Turkey?

They are perfect for creating a simple swamp cooler. Put your carboy or bucket inside and add ice/water.

Have been looking but cant find anything. So far the only thing I've found big enough was a kiddie pool, but that was a little too big, would need to add at least 60 litres of water to it :/
