Speaking of comics, has anyone here ever unloaded some of theirs - or have suggestions on where to store things? I've basically at this point filled up my supply of long/short boxes, and have them all stacked up in our office (which is also the collection room). Although I do like to go through them every so often, as we've been trying to clean the house out a bit I've considered getting rid of some of them. The vast majority are more recent (within the past 10 years), so I'm not sure there is necessarily a lot of value, but again I don't just want to throw them out either.
Brian - I had some storage issues a while back as well. I had all my comics bagged and boarded, and you'd be surprised at how much space the added protection takes up. I ended up changing my storage from one comic/board/bag to two comics (front to back) per bag. So, Issue #1 goes in the bag, issue #2 gets flipped backwards and goes in the same bag on the other side. If I pick up the bag and rotate it, I can see the covers for both issues. With the bag thicker and binder reinforcement on both sides, you don't need backing boards anymore, though I still use them every 20-30 issues to protect an anniversary or #1 issue sometimes. I probably gained about 20% more storage per box with this method. Might buy you a little more time.
