Default Harvesting yeast

when I started brewing purchaced White Labs yeast. I want to harvest these yeasts for other batches. How? I have to transfer to the secondary tomorrow night and I cant see the difference between trub and yeast because I am using pails for my primary. Am I screwed and should just order more yeast

You certainly can use a bucket and harvest yeast. Here is a guide from Wyeast > http://www.wyeastlab.com/hbrew/hbyewash.htm
Search the forums too as there are a number of good threads on this subject.
