I just use the big flat boxes the supermarket uses for produce. I put the apples one layer deep, slightly apart from each other. I get a few odd looks when i throw three boxes in the trolley, when all I've bought is some milk and bread,but hey...
The boxes will stack on top of each other in the garage. I've got onions in some as well.The garage is probably the coldest place I've got. The apples go off too quick in the house. My James Grieve apples will keep until about Xmas.
Just check regularly, and throw any that show signs of rot. Any that are damaged or bruised now will not store, and I cut them up, stew , and freeze them.
