I came across this idea on Pinterest, you take a bucket, a section of pool noodle, a trash bag and you make your own potty bucket. Just line the bucket with the trashbag, slip the slit pool noodle over the edge for a toilet seat and attach a roll of TP to the metal handle. Instant, Portable Potty with no fuss! This is wonderful for camping, long car trips where you don't necessarily want to use public restrooms (especially with little kids!), etc.
