I usually just use a couple of bags of Morgan silver dollars for mine.

However, when I failed to stop by the bank in time, I have used double plastic bag liners tucked inside a pair of athletic sox. Tried the kitty litter once, damn cat had got to it first. Makes it lumpy. Shot for a heavy bag, rice for a light bag.
