I need something cheep that can be used as a hide for my leopard gecko.
I found some styrofoam, but I want to be sure it's safe before using it

You can make a diy hide with styrofoam. If you have Pinterest, there's a lot of stuff on there that will help you out. It's cheaper in the long run, after you get all the supplies. You can make multiple hides with the material.

Ok, I was just making sure that it wouldn't make him sick or whatever
I actually do have Pinterest I'll take a look at that too

Just make sure you allow the hides to dry for at least a week. My experience wasn't so great because I was excited and put them in too early. The heat from the hot side humidified the paint

Another cheap option is to use rubber maid sandwich containers. I spray paint them a tan paint and cut a hole with soilder iron allow it to dry for 24 hours. Cheap, simple, and works
