Trying to make a simple robot out of a toaster

Ok so I’ve got this project I want to start for a maker faire spinoff and also just experience where I gut a toaster and put it on a simple drive train. I have some sketches and stuff, but my current issue is how to wire the thing up. I have experience in first tech challenge and considered using a rev expansion hub, but those are fairly large and expensive. Not to mention the motors and batteries going with it are too. Any suggestions for a cheaper and smaller option? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
