In light of recent past events I thought this was a Booyah.
Clubstogie - I believe the advice here is pretty simple and straightforward - if you are really tight on the funds a freezer size ziploc and a couple 65% humipacks thrown into the frig are exactly what you need.
On a seperate note - with your nick you are going to draw quite a bit of attention and very likely scrutinized more than other new members.
Three simple steps to make your stay enjoyable and be a good part of the community:
1). Read the stickies - under Home at the top of this page - kind of a road map for the Forum and will answer most of your initial questions
2). Read more - post less
3). The Good Neighbor Policy is in effect here - you will find lots of great people and a wealth of knowledge here
A wooden cigar box you can get from the local shop for either free or $2 would work just fine until you get the funds for something better. I'd offer to send something I used, but it wouldn't be much better than the cigar box and those are made with spanish cedar.
If you do grab a box let me as I may have some extra beads to send; have to double check.
And thanks for not dancing around what you wanted/needed and just asked? Seriously!
FWIW, I was in Wally*World last night and saw a tupperware-type storage container with 4 locking latches, one on each side of the lid. I didn't measure the container, but it was made for putting a loaf of bread in. It appeared that you could put about 2 corona/robusto sized cigar boxes in it comfortably. It was $6 and change. That and a Boveda pack and I'd think you'd have some safely stored smokes for cheap, with the benefit of beinf able to store them in their cedar boxes.
