    Question Need Help Choosing New Humidor & Humidification Device

    I've started having a cigar just about every day and I need a better humidor setup. I typically have about 50-75 sticks on hand at any given point and never a box of the same so everything is a variety of shapes and sizes so Im looking for a 75-100 stick box for something under 100$ and want something that isn't rustic/renaissance/your grand dads style something modern and cedar lined. Actually, nvm, It will be in a closet 100% of the time so I dont care what it looks like, if a Tupperware box will work great then thats what I should be using. I've been using the foam/gel cartridges you fill with distilled h2o for humidification and it is NEVER consistent. The box will be opened at least once a day for about 2 minutes to sift thru and make a selection.
    The other issue I have is, out of the 50 sticks at least 40 are completely different from a full body NUB to a mild whatever, I keep my infused cigars separate but is it acceptable to keep a wildly varying selection mixed as long as they all are in the cellophane?

    Id love to have a store sized cabinet so I can use an automatic humidification control but thats just too much to have one at each house.



    To summarize:
    I need input on...
    -Humidor modern style
    -humidification device
    -Hydrometer system




    I typically order from Famous Smoke shop or thompson cigar.

    If you want to use tuppaware, go ahead, no problem with that part. The humidor, just seal test it and if you like it. Then season it if needed.
    If tuppaware, put some cedar inside in my opinion.


    Here ya go.

    if you dont want those packs, which can be "re-charged", you can also use beads.

    Thanks for some hydro rec.

    This isnt what I was originally asking about but this is way cheaper than I thought It would be. Countertop Display 150 Count Humidor Mahogany

    Would also have an excuse for buying more unique cigars, having room for them and all....

    If you want something extremely affordable the Tupperware route isn't a bad thought... Make sure to cedar line it, and i prefer to use boveda packs...

    Im just going to get a jumbo aluminum scent proof bag and stick the infused stuff in there and toss it in the bottom of the cabinet. Can't be bothered with a separate system to monitor humidity and temps for only 50 cigars
