The title says it all. What do you use for carrying tripods/light stands? I need an inexpensive solution. Please share photos and/or links to where you bought them. Thanks a lot!
Currently I use the bags from bag chairs....

Avenger A420 in back of the car. Then just roll the thing with octabox/softbox mounted on strobes.

Manfrotto LBAG110. Large enough and made well.

I found a Manfrotto Padded Tripod Bag (MBAG80PN) locally for around $50. It usually holds lightstands, umbrellas, and a flash or two very nicely. I think I've only used it once to actually hold my tripod.

I use a rolling cart to store my stands. It's basically a tall milk crate with wheels. Not sure I'd hike down a trail or climb a couple stories of stairs but I'd use it for light duty commercial stuff. I put gaffers tape to create three channels so I can get 8 light stands, backdrop rig, slider and a couple umbrellas in it. Otherwise I'd use the bags my stuff came in.
$5.00 folding chair from Wallgreens had a nice black bag, that can carry my tripod or two impact light stands with two umbrellas
I use a banner stand carrying case. It has 4 pockets in side to hold my umbrella and holds 2 stands.

I bought a used StandBagger and have never looked back...... They don't look inexpensive brand new...but they are awesome!

Lowel DP3 Case for stands, lights, gels and softboxes. Probably overkill for you since mine is for continuous lighting but you asked.

Not sure if these qualify as "inexpensive" but I use a pair of Photoflex Transpac Outbound Bags that I purchased from B&H. I carry 4 Impact 13' light stands and a background crossbar in one, and 4x Photoflex Large soft box, 1x Photoflex Medium Softbox, 4x Bowens Quick Rings + a couple of foldable grids in the other.
You might try golf bag covers. I'm sure there are hundreds to choose from, and many of them will be dirt cheep.
