Default first mead question

Hi everyone,
I just started my first batch of mead with zero equipment. I am using a gallon water jug with a balloon. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a cheap but still good way to bottle.

Used soda bottles work nicely when you're on a budget.

Swing top glass bottles from Ross or similar store. I buy them for $2 to $3 each.
