Cigars 101

What can I use to store my cigars instead of a humidor?

A:  You can use a Tupperware container (a/k/a a “Tupperdor”) with a small piece of sponge dampened with distilled water, or a standard humidifier inside. The latter is a better way to go since you can affix the humidifier to the top of the lid as you would in a real humidor. You might want to get an hygrometer, too, since the humidity can build up very quickly in a sealed container. Keep it out of any direct sun or lamplight, too.
