When you’re ready to light up one of your cigars, just open ‘er up, take one out and close the lid again. That’s all there is to it! Enjoy.

I decided to bring some cigars back from Cuba. They were super fresh—like, freshly rolled on the farm fresh. But they only let you buy in bulk there, so I needed a way to store them all since I don’t smoke that often. I knew a humidor was the way to go— they can preserve cigars for years if properly maintained —but I quickly found out they can be pretty expensive. After doing a little Googling and Youtubing, I came across the “tupperdor.” It’s a DIY humidor that works great and can be made very cheaply (especially if you already own some plastic food storage containers).


If you’re moving huge files around or need to keep your entire media library with you, sometimes the good ol’ fashioned sneakernet is the best method. Flash drives are fine for a few files, but if you really want to tote some data, external drives are the way to go.

All in all, you should be able to build your own custom humidor for less than $85 (not including cigars). I forgot to order my humidity controller when I first built my tupperdor, so it’s not visible in the pictures here. Don’t make the same mistake!

We know you’ve got a cool bag with some smart ideas inside, so let us know! Share your bag in our Lifehacker Go Bag Show and Tell Flickr pool, shoot me a message through the link below, or post it to your own Kinja blog with the tag “ featured bag.” The photo has to be at least 855x955, and should include information about your bag, the gear inside, and what makes it great.

If you’re a cigar fan, you need a place to keep them so they’ll stay fresh and ready to smoke. But a nice humidor can cost you around $655. Here’s how you can build one yourself for a lot less.
