    Bum Humi advice

    Hi Guys!

    I've been thinking about buying a humidor after smoking a few cigars so I don't have to keep going to the store haha Im lazy.I don't really know much about them or want to waste my money on a shitty one.

    I am worried that I will get one that is not the right size then I will end up having to buy another one because I don't really know what to look for and I am new to this.

    Saw some options compared on this site and I am leaning towards the Case Elegance one.

    https://puffclassics.com/best-cigar-humidor/

    I have a budget of $150 and I still need to get a decent cutter! Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Ideally something that I can't mess up lol, something simple.

    Thanks for the help

    No matter what you buy it won't be big enough.
    Unless you want something pretty on your desk or table, the cost effective solution is a larger Tupperware. Aka tupperdore.

    It will never be big enough! I would make sure that you spend money on a good cutter first. A terrible cut will ruin you experience when the cigar starts coming apart because it mangled the cap. Once you have a really good cutter, you'll never look back. Josh's advice of a tupperdor is great. Get a big piece of tupperware and some Bovedas and use that for now. Just keep it out of direct sunlight to help manage temp and humidity swings.

    Amazon has the Audew 150 count climate controlled humi for $198 and a $40 coupon that can be applied at checkout. Itís a couple bucks above your budget but my recommendation would be this or go the Tupperdor route.

    You might reach out to member Cheaphumidors aka Kayla and see what she would recommend.

    What is best for you will depend on what area of the country you live and its climate.

    A great place to start out is with a Tupperware container and using Boveda packs for humidity control. 65% Bovedas is a great place to start and its cheap. $20-$25 and it will keep your cigars without worry. As you learn more you can get something more pleasing.

    A word of advice, don't go buying boxes or even 5'ers of cigars until you really learn what you like. It takes time for your pallete to develop and you don't want to end up with a bunch of cigars you really have no desire to smoke a year or two from now. Limit your purchases to 1 or 2 like cigars until you grow in the hobby.

    As others have said - start with tupperware and bovedas until you decide whether this is a long term hobby for you. No sense in dumping money into something you'll soon outgrow if you decide to continue or something you will no longer need if not. If you decide you want the nice look and "feel" of a desktop humidor and don't mind spending for it - check out CheapHumidors and talk with Kayla
    No cigar until you get a par - birdie if it's a scramble !

    Save your money for cigars at this time to figure out what you like. If you get something larger, you will be compelled to fill it. Empty space is a vacuum. No sense in filling it with cigars you may not enjoy down the road.

    As everyone has said, unless you're aching for a show piece, go with Tupperware. Probably the BEST seal that you can get to maintain your rH.
    And you will have more coin to fill it/them.

    And as we all know, Nature abhors a vacuum.
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
