First day of classes and boy did I get some bad news right after class. My families home caught on fire and I think parts of my collection are destroyed :-(  My massive adv guild modules destroyed probably as well as some non tsr :-(  I'll have to drive back home on a weekend and see what the damage are :-( Estimated damage of the fire on our home was 40K :-(  I'm gonna rent a storage unit from now on and put my items in there. Much safer and save me the heartache hearing my stuff got destroyed :-(

Hey Mike, I feel for you.  Good luck.  I hope you didn't lose too much.

Thx guys for the support. I'm at home right now assessing everything. Most of the items can be replaced with a lot of searching and $$$. I'll bounce back :-)

I'm very sorry to hear about the loss.  It's one of my worst nightmares.   If you do plan to use a storage closet, I'd advise putting all your items in large plastic tupperware-type tubs, and not in cardboard boxes.  The tubs prevent vermin, and water from leaks or busted pipes.

Hi Will, thanks for the tip. I did make sure the storage unit doesn't leak and put some plastic bags on the ground. Currently I have my items all packed up in boxes. I will have to check out some plastic tubs, boxes, etc and see how much they run.
