Anyone have any links for buying cardboard boxes for storing frames and the best sized boxes?

Sorry, I have no idea, but be careful with cardboard. No difficulty at all for mice to get in. I store frames in appropriate hive box with boards top and bottom. Excess frames go in plastic crates with snap on lids.
Any frames without wax get tied in bundles and hung on nails in the shed

As above. super frames in supers brood in brood boxes. Usually leave waxing to the last minute. Drawn brood frames and food frames in freezer.

I just use empty supers. A super with plain frame runners will hold about 16 frames. I store them eight high in a barn with a sealed crown board on top.
