Sponge filters?

So I've found my local fish and big box stores do not stock any format of Sponge filters, where do you guys (who use them) acquire you're Sponge filters and what types do you use? Any input would be appreciated.

There's a lot of YouTube videos that show u how to make really nice sponge filters for cheap. The work great and are more customizable to your specific tank.

Hard to believe, seems as though these filters would be more common given the price point, $25 buys a cheap air pump that can power a few sponges, $7 can buy a decent sponge filter, seems like a decent option. Thanks for the links cb, they will likely be my source of order as buying locally isn't an option unfortunately, I love to support local fish stores.

I find it kinda odd that stores don't carry songs filters. None of my chains have them. Even my LFS I don't recall specifically having sponge filters(just a bunch of pads)

I have Amazon prime so I just got some cheap ones from there.
