I keep my sleeping bag and tarp in a large Rubbermaid tote with a good sealed lid out of their stuff sacks so they can spread out and are not compressed or creased anywhere.
Now I do keep them in my attic which I have always wondered if the heat will degrade the gear at all but so far I haven't had any issues.
I keep the rest of my gear in labeled totes so I know where it is and can get what i need depending on what I am doing. I also keep a double nest in my car at all times, just in case.
