How about a milk crate from the corner grocery store?

But seriously, do you have a rear rack on your bike? I've been using this Axiom grocery pannier bag. It works good but there are better ones out there. It hauls a bag of groceries home without a problem.

You may want to look in the Utility Forum, as they cover hauling stuff all the time.
