If it is long term storage, (that is open only once) and you can have a hygrometer inside to measure, I agree it is a cheap option.
However, everytime you open the box, you have invited humid air into your dry box again. Then the silicon gel that in your box will not be able to absorb the any more new moisture.
I have been there done that, still the final result is the electric dry cabinet.
