Does anyone use the Lighthouse HP40 pockets for storing their First day covers and if so how are you storing these?

I am looking at the Light house "Collectors Box for approval cards"
EK Box A5S

I use a plastic cover I bought at a local stamp store. I think 100 of them came in the package. Then I found a shoe box that was the right size.

Note that many cardboard boxes contain acid forming lignin. It makes little sense to use archival FDC glassines, mounts or sleeves and then store them in a non-archival box. There are archival rated cardboard boxes but they are pricey.
