my best bet might be to just put really cheap ceramic in there right now, and plan on just tearing it all up when I get ready to remodel.

Before you do that, I suggest you buy about 4 square feet of tile, install them and "practice" removal. This is not easy.

Removing individual vinyl tile is also problematic. If you really cannot use the final tile now, I second the suggestion of vinyl roll goods. Generally this get "stuck" down by double sticky tape at the edges of the room. While install in not rocket science, it is possible to mess up. One idea to consider is removing any shoe molding (aka quarter round). That way is your room is not perfectly square (and few are) you don't have to worry about cutting the sheet to exactly match the room shape.
