I just found these today at Big Lots and picked up three to try out. 100% clear plastic with a screw on lid.

They are like the popular Mainstays cannisters from Wally World

These are shorter and wider than the Mainstays containers.

Probably the best feature is the recessed bottom.

Which means unlike the Mainstays cannisters, these are designed to be stackable!

So if you stacked them and put ventilation holes in the top of the clear plastic cannisters you would still get plenty of air flow.
This particular model holds 80 oz./2366 ml/10 cups. It's probably better suited to a terrestrial/obligate burrower but you can still get a good 4 inches of substrate in this cannister and still leave plenty of room for the spider.
These cannisters come in four sizes.
1. 128 oz. $3 (Like the taller Mainstays, I saw it should have bought one.)
2. 80 oz. $2
3. 48 oz. Price unknown
4. 32 oz. Price Unknown

I can't wait to modify these and get them ready for inhabitants.

I was only partially joking, I went to big lots and...

I figured the larger ones would actually be perfect for crested gecko hatchlings and the smaller one I could use for arachnids.
$4 and $2 for them.

I got the 128 oz and the 80 oz. Since you already took the pictures of the 80 oz I'll add the 128 oz pictures.
