Small, very inexpensive way to get started?

I'm being very frugal nowadays, and I have a vegetable garden outside in the summer, but I'd like to try hydroponics in the winter when it's well below freezing outside.
I'm thinking of a very small container, no more than 1x2 feet, and something I can get dirt cheap or preferably scavenge from stuff I already have around the house. I am fairly handy with tools. My plan is to grow iceberg lettuce, radishes, etc.
I've read the suggestions in the Getting Started section, but they seem to be too big or too expensive for me. The closer the cost is to 0, the better :-)
