    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    Exclamation can i store it in ...


    can it be stored in a rubbermaid container loosely?
    or would it better to store it the attic in a laundry bag?
    currently keep my primaloft in mesh bag in my shed in a rubbermaid container
    and keep other bags in the attic.


    which would be better for down?

    which would be better for primaloft?

    update

    my father came down during Thanksgiving with plywood. we built 5 shelves in my shed. now it is my own "Man Cave Nut Hut Bike Barn"

    It is has shelf covered with an old shower curtain to protect against snags.
    my plans will be fully realized when I can park the bikes beside each other in the shed.

    This picture shows the place for my incubator to live when it comes in.

    The best way is to hang them, like Shug; this way the down doesn't get compressed, except by other down.

    I don't have that much space, so I got canvas laundry bags on Amazon with draw cords. I keep them hanging from nails or on shelf in my garage.

    Does the heat is a garage or shed affect a quilt in storage? We have seen temps here get to 100* and I know TX has seen higher. Looking for a better place to store them than the back of the bedroom door.

    I can't see heat hurting them, but you don't want to store them in a humid area.

    I use old sail bags from genoas or better yet spinnakers. I kept the bags from sails I retired or spinnakers that we blew to pieces.
    Whether trail or paddle don't you know
    My hammock is the way to go
    There peace and solitude I find
    To ease all troubles from my mind
    Both body and soul revel in delight
    As day surrenders to inky night

    plastic bag in my basement. I don't own down but if I did I would store down there. Utah it is very dry and cold in the winter and hot in the summer. I would put it in one ounce in a plastic bag and just split it by one ounces.
    Bacon and Camping makes me happy.
