    Hi
    I am moving in 2 weeks and we are putting most of our boxes in a POD storage container. I have some choices about storing my scrap stuff (photos and books and all the toys and embellies):
    1. Put them in the POD (I may not see them for
    about a month though and I am worried
    about excessive heat potential).
    2. Put them at my MIL's house basement which
    is very damp.(DH's Idea )
    3. Let the movers take them w/the furniture
    and have them store the boxes in the
    garage til my scrap space is ready.
    I'd like to put them in the POD but am afraid of the heat.
    Your thoughts please & TIA.

    Could you put all the non-paper stuff in the POD and let the movers take the paper things. I wouldn't keep them in the garage though. Can you put them somewhere else in the house? I guess it also depends on the weather where you're moving to. Is is humid there?

    I don't know where you live, but the garage will also be hot. If I had the choice, and if I were going to be in the house you are moving to immediately, I'd go for the garage. It would be the lesser of three evils. You will probably be able to get to the stuff in the garage the easiest. You do not want to leave any pictures either place. My garage probably hits over 100 degrees in the hot weather, but I can get some ventilation, but you would not be able to in the POD. I hope this helps. And I hope your move goes well.

    I would opt for the basement. You can put everything in plastic bags with those moisture absorbing packets thrown in and if you cannot find the moisture absorbing psckets, you can usually find the packets through bulk food distributors or on line. They are wonderful little things.

    I have moved over fifty times and have stored my things in all kinds of temps and humidity. All my things are put in regular carboard boxes that also help to absorb excess moisture of summer heat and I have never lost a photo.

    I don't know where to store them but i agree with Judith, try to keep your pictures as close as possible. With backup we should never lose them. I feel like Monk sometimes when I have four or five backups and I want to make more.

    good idea on the back up; I would keep the pictures as close as possible, and a digital backup of those on the computer. Best of luck with the move, try to label all your SB boxes so you know what's in them.

    When we moved from Calif. to Wisc. we also had the PODs. We drove out while the PODs were in storage til our house was done being worked on.
    what I did was take my scrap stuff with me in the car. The heck with cloths! I also had my computer with me as well.
    This worked out good cause I always knew where my stuff was.
    Hope this helps.

    pics are most precious but just a few tips from someone who has been there recently. These are some things you need to worry about the heat with
    Ink pads
    reinkers
    paints
    adhesives
    tape (gets gummy)
    liquid adhesives this includes anything from white glue, modge podge,liquid applique, Diamond glaze (dimensional adhesive)
    gel pens (all kinds)
    stickers (because of the adhesive back)
    anything paper if humidity is also an issue
