How to keep/store your ammo for long periods?

I have sumthing like 300 rounds for my 9mm pistols and 400 round for my .38 revolver Plus about 500 rounds for my .303 bolt action revolver and sum 4000 shotgun shells. I keep them in their cardboard boxes and thats about it.

I have been storing them up for about 3-6 years... i just want to know if thats the right way to store them. Would it be safe from humidity and all?

or do i need to store the ammo in a safer way... like wrapping it in a thick quilt or towel opr sumthing?

Please advise
