temporary storage space
Your best option for preserving your cigars until you purchase a humidor is to keep your cigars stored in a “humi pouch”.

After 3 months, you would need to replace the bag or relocate your cigars to a humidor.

They’ asics running shoes re available at most cigar stores and tobacconists and depending on the size, can cost anywhere between $4 $12 USD per bag.

As a cheaper alternative, you can also keep your cigars in a brand new (or sterilized) plastic Tupperware container with a humidification device filled with distilled water. If you use this method, it’s important to remember that Tupperware containers are almost air tight so you will need to let the lid rest loose and not sealed tight. This will allow the excess humi asics running shoes dity to vent. You will also need to purchase a hygrometer to monitor the humidity inside the container. For cigars, the humidity must not exceed 74% humidity. (70% is considered ideal.) Prolonged exposure to humidity levels above 74% can cause mold to grow on your cigars. You can also use a clean, unscented sponge in place of the humidification device. Simply place the sponge in a dish so that it doesn’t drip on any of the cigars.
