I think I do basically exactly what ibeentired posted above
first off, YES - you wil want to buy that bottling bucket and the bottling spigot. Obviously the spigot goes into the pre drilled hole…
from there, here is what I do
I bought a shorter peice of tubing - I think maybe just a foot to 18 inches or so. as noted above my guess is it was the 3/8th size. one part of the tubing goes on the spigot, the other onto this thing:

Siphon beer into bottling bucket (do you have an auto siphon?) and add priming sugar at that time early on, will circulate into the beer
then, at least for me, if I put the now full botting bucket on top of a milk crate OR my primary bucket with a lid, the end of the bottle filler ends up just about chest level for me. simply take the bottle, push it up into the filler, will fill and when it gets close to the top pull it away.
as I said in another post I do this over an open dish washer (if it is a possibility for you) so anything that does spill over goes onto the dishwasher door
hope this helps.
