This is by far the most cost effective way of purchasing fixer. I purchase 25KG Thiousulphate about every 4 years for less than 50 (that was the price 3 years ago) and Bisulphate is also inexpensive and easily available. A cheap set of kitchen scales will suffice for weighing for the exact quantities are not critical. For years I have not used scales when making fixer, I measure the quantities in graduates, having made a note of the approximate levels in the graduates once when it was correctly weighed. I hasten to add that I do use a laboratory balance when weighing out quantities for developers.
