As I was cleaning my desk yesterday, I found an empty iPhone 5 box. Sleeved cards fit perfectly inside, so I decided to make a custom game box for Todd Sanders' 2016 Solitarie Game Design Contest Entry - The Thief in the Forest of Wyr (Contest Ready).

Sorry I didn't take any before pics, but adding a full page sticker to the box cover made it perfect (except for my imperfect application of the sticker).

70 sleeved cards, plus a little box of cubes fits perfect.

Sorry, I don't remember, maybe Menards or Walmart. They came in a bigger clear plastic case about 7"x9"x2" with about a dozen of these smaller containers. They work great for cubes or 4 dice.

I use my Galaxy S5 cases in a similar way. Had to make a little insert to keep the cards divided though, which left a space big enough for tokens and dice.

I've purchased little plastic boxes like these at Harbor Freight. Like Scott's box, about two dozen came in a larger plastic box.
