Hey guys I am looking for some sort of Pouch to use for my cups and balls routine. Now I can't afford anything super expensive (like gazzo's) but does anyone know of a good substitution like a tool belt or something? I've been trying to find something to use but no luck so far

Restaurant aprons are virtually useless for Cups and Balls. They're thin and designed to stay flat. You need something heavy enough to hold it's shape with or without a load inside. The nearest substitute is probably a carpenter's nail apron or tool pouch in canvas or leather.

Frank Starsinic of http://www.theambitiouscard.com has addressed this issue of affordable pouches and has produced several good ones that don't cost an arm and a leg.

Unfortunatly as great as those pouches look, they are a tad bit out of my price range. I'll have to look for a nail apron or took pouch thanks!

I made mine and suspended it with wire on the bottom to help it retain it's shape.

With this one has the option to keep items separate or can be altered to have larger pouches. Pouches don't rest flat and can be held out further by adding wire. Cut and fashion some coat-hanger so that the top of the pouch folds over and then staple or sew. $23 from casinosupply.

Or for $19 one can fashion this to stay open and attach it to a belt or way of tying it. Hmm, Size 5 5/8" X 4 1/8" may not be large enough.
[This item now seems to be missing from their site.]

...And there is this, 11x10, available in black for $40. The attached belt loops could be folded back and sewn to the pouch to hide them.

Another idea would be to head over to TJ MAX, ROSS, MARSHALS, thrift/second-hand store, garage sales, etc. and look for a leather purse that could be cut and and fashioned in to a desired pouch.
