A kitchen strainer should work well enough for you to capture some big critters in a pond, stream or river. I use one from time to time myself. For years, I used film canisters to store things, but there are not as many of those around as there used to be. I just used rubbing alcohol from the drugstore. Problem there is that the specimens get really brittle to handle. But, it is what I had to work with, and I did fine. I've also used baby food jars. For bulk samples, I used plastic peanut butter jars. I've see people use the glass vials intended for blood collection, too. Not sure about pricing on those, however. I think those may have come about from a special situation.
