Does anyone have any experience with using a plastic tub (like a rubbermaid or sterilite) for a cold frame? I plan on starting a larger number of plants indoors but would rather not be dependent on electricity for starting seeds and wouldn't mind saving the space. Yay or nay?

There is. It can also get brittle in the cold and blow away in the wind.
But they are relatively cheap and will get the job done. I like the old shower doors or storm windows setting over hay bales better.
