    Wow! That is amazing! I know what I'm doin tomorrow! I can't even see why I need a humidor when I can do that, although I'm sure one is in my future.

    I have one question though, how would I go about recharging the kitty litter, another legging full of it in a separate container and rotate? Or would it just be easier to stock up on a whole bunch of Boveda packs? Seems like that would be pretty expensive and defeat the purpose?

    That is what I started with. Like others said, grab a couple bovida packs, a cutter, and a lighter and you're all set to go!

    Plus it is a glass top so you can see your sticks!

    Does this humidor have a decent seal? Whatever it is that I end up using, I want to make sure it will keep my cigars nicely. My collection isn't large (around 15 sticks), but I have some nice and "expensive to me" cigars I would hate to lose.

    That "Tupperdore" is looking pretty sweet though. Either way I still know what I'm doing tomorrow.

    I have two of them, one really old abused one that was given to me, and one brand new one I got about two months ago. The new one is holding a steady 67% right now using the foam humidification device and 50/50 cigar juice. It is sitting on my desk in my dorm room so they aren't in any special conditions.

    Both have a very solid seal and hold nicely after being seasoned.

    Seriously! Avoid the cheap humidors and stick with a cooler, or tupperware.

    I would advise against kitty litter in any small vessel, where space is, or shortly will become a concern. It simply requires too much volume, as compared to aBoveda, or better yet, Heartfelt Humidity Beads. Additionally, the latter are regulated, so require no "training", which is unavoidable in the case of litter.

    Where do I get the Heartfelt Beads, Heartfeltindustries.c o m? The only reason I ask is because I thought they came in a bag not a tube..

    They come in many forms now. The free beads are really more for larger set ups, where you can place them in a small bowl, or whatever you'd like. You can get the round humidifier or tubes in 60, 65 or 70% rH. If you're going the small/medium tupperdore route, the rounds or Tubes will be good for you.
