Storing Flower Bulbs?

Because we've just started a major renovation project requiring our whole yard to be torn up, I dug up all the bulbs, corms, and tubers around the house. Unfortunately (I now realize after reading), I cut off the foliage of half of these plants, and threw them into cardboard boxes that are in a cool, moderately dry place inside. The other bulbs I hastily replanted in another location. Given I'm in New Zealand, the daffodils had already flowered. But many of the various bulbs either were in bloom or yet to bloom (eg, lilies without much growth yet).

So my question is, shall I go ahead and just throw out these bulbs, ie. have I just killed them, made them so they will never reflower again? Hoping not. Can anyone advise me as to what I should be doing with all these bulbs? (replant now? later after renovations are complete in NZ's autumn? toss 'em?) Thanks very much in advance, and "cheers" as they say here.

You can use an egg carton, that's been cleaned, to store your plant bulbs till you're ready to plant them. Just label what they are and put where you won't forget they're there.
