I'm the worst of the worst when it comes to actually using bags. If I like a bag a whole lot cause it's pretty, I tend to get it and then store it away. I look at it and it's gorgeous but I can't bring myself to use it. I have some that I use for a day then store it. Thing is, I might not use it for a period of a year or maybe more. I don't want anything happening to my bags. After reading about bags rotting and peeling off, I was unsure how to store bags long-term. I've kept my bags in dust bags and a plastic bag over the dustbag until someone mentioned that plastic wouldn't be good cause they need to breathe. No biggie, I just started collecting them last November or so. So I poke holes all over the plastic bags so the bags can breathe through both the dustbag and plastic bag. The bags I don't use and rarely use goes into BF's closet. Is this the right way to store it for long-term? BF had told me already that when we get married and have a house, I will have a room devoted to my formal dresses and bags (I never went to a school dance, ever - strict parents). Kinda like a museum of my stuff. Also, each bag has a dessicant bag (the DO NOT EAT baggies that traps any moisture while item is in storage). Any ideas? Am I doing this right/wrong? Help! I don't want to lose my collection one day due to wrongful storage.
