Adapt and overcome dammit.
Use the resources you have at hand and make it work.
“Didn’t have a pot lid, but I had a cheap pizza pan, a pop riveter, and a coat hanger. Now I have a pot lid.”
When you don’t need it for that anymore, drill out the rivets, set it over a bucket and you have a self draining cleaning tray for cleaning greasy parts.
Some people call it recycling or repurposing.
I call it common fucking sense.
I have a bunch of old tin kitchenware shit out in the garage, even a porcelain covered turkey cooking pan I use for cleaning parts in that some lady gave to me at a garage sale just to get rid of it.
Old bread pans, pie tins, cookie sheets, I use ’em all the time for drip pans and such.
If they get too nasty or wiped out then and only then, do I toss ’em.
