For a temporary bag solution -
use any suitable sized shoulder bag
and just line the bottom and sides with some of that plastic bubble packing sheets.

If you like the effect then you can line the liner with some cloth....

To further protect against things knocking about - use some form of separator - it can be a simple as cardboard.

Tube socks are great - turn fold them in half,
and that can be used as a very good soft lens pouch.
Also use them to cover the cardboard separators.

There are some advantages of having a homemade bag -
they are not obvious as a camera bag -
therefore less of a risk of being a theft target.

As long as you protect it from knocks, keep it dry and reasonably free of dust it should be fine. With a bag this is just easier to do as is carrying what you need. In case you take it out where it is below freezing or so it may be a good idea to seal the camera and lens(es) into a ziplock bag before getting back inside and let them warm before opening the bag to avoid water condensing on/in them.

I live in SoCal. I don't think I'll have to worry about freezing temperatures, lol.

Would just keeping it in teh box that it comes in be fine until I get a bag? I'll probably do that or kick out my dad's ME out of his case, lol, and use that.

Oh yes, our idea - and yours - of winter is certainly different :-)

The lenses and camera should do fine inside without a bag. Actually, you might do better keeping everything in a well ventilated space for storage (instead of a bag with which you have been caught by a downpour, at least) to avoid fungus which can grow inside lenses and ruin them if they are left in a moist (and dark) environment.
