Upgrade suggestions

Well Iíve hit that point that everyone loves to have a problem of again... Iím out of room.

Starting to look for some bigger cabinet style ideas, that I can consolidate into. Any suggestions youíve tried? Any Ďhard passí ones?

I converted a large scale wine fridge for cigars. I ďshouldnítĒ run out of room again. It was a bit of work, required custom shelving and a small fortune in humidity beads, but it sure does the job.

I would definitely buy a cooler. My Whytner 251s with all drawers holds a ton but, I still have two wood Humidors and two tuppers full.

lol, I wasn't trying to show off or anything, just trying to point you in the storage direction you need to go in

In all seriousness tho, if you go with a cabinet, the good ones are pretty expensive and you can easily convert a closet for a very similar price. The cheaper Chinese-made ones are OK, but you'll need to do some work on them as well (I have another thread about sealing up my cabinet). The only other answer is a coolerdor / chest freezer that's not plugged in. Those work quite well if you don't care too much about the aesthetics of it.

So I've seen this statement fairly often over the years here at Puff. I don't inherently disagree, but I will say that some (perhaps many) of us do care about the aesthetics of our collections. Personally, having my collection nicely sorted, on display, and being able to go into my humidor and "peruse" all my cigars is something I enjoy doing. I also enjoy when a friend comes over and we spend a few min in there deciding what to take out.

Is that personal enjoyment a justification for the cost of setting up something that's, aesthetically, "nicer" than a cooler ? There's no right or wrong answer to that question, as it's completely subjective and up to the individual. For me, the answer was yes, the cost was justified and I'd do it all over again if I had the choice. In fact, I'd do it a lot sooner so I could have saved $$$ on those cabinets and end-tables I bought. For some, who don't care about the aesthetics of storage and just care that their sticks are being stored properly, yes, absolutely a cooler can work.
