This may be so simple as to be a waste of a question, but help me out: I have a bunch of dress shirts that are traditionally hung up, but due to a (favorable) change in my dress code at work, I’d like to take them down and put them away to free up some closet space. I seem to remember there being some sort of framework/insert that you could buy and insert into such shirts that would help them keep their shape better or not get permanently irrevocably wrinkled. Any idea what these things are called and where I could buy them online?

I need advice from experienced bakers, pavlova makers, or Kiwis/Aussies. How do you transport a pavlova? And do you pre-assemble it or not? I'm making a pavlova for a birthday dinner & I'm concerned about cracking & sogginess. Help! [more inside]

What is the hands-down cheapest
way to store a large amount of data online: say 100GB with say 100GB transfer per month?
Bandwidth and transfer limit aren't a priority as long as media files can be streamed right away any time.
Why? Because we would all like to put our music collections online.
The lowest I've found is about 10 cents per gigabyte.

I'm subletting my house for 6 months and need to leave my car in my garage for that period. My tenants have offered to start the car periodically the keep the battery running. The car is not registered, so they won't be able to drive it more than a few feet on driveway (backing out and driving back in). Is this amount of activity enough so that the car will be functional when I return? Or do I need to take more extensive storage measures (e.g. disconnecting battery)? Thanks!

I'm looking for the best customer-facing remote backup solution that can back up from my network NAS drive. A lot of the customer-facing solutions like MozyHome don't support the NAS drive. Also I'm wondering...with 1 terabyte to back up, won't it take months to upload?

I've recently (sadly, I might say) started watching Storage Wars
on A & E. Outside of the slightly gameshow aspect of the program, can anyone tell me anything about buying and flipping defaulted storage units? It seems fascinating beyond the trashy staged feel of the TV show.

We've had a couch in a storage unit for a few years now. We'd like to bring it back into our apartment. What precautions should we take before we bring it? (i.e. concerns about dust, pests, molds.) The couch is fabric (not microfiber to my recollection) and has not been wrapped.

Moving house: our new appartment comes with its own refrigerator and washing machine. We can store our own fridge and washing machine in a shed in my mothers yard. How can I best protect the machines against moist conditions and subzero (Celcius) temperatures in winter?

I'm about to move out of my parents house into my first apartment post-college, and I intend to take all of my possessions with me - including a decent amount of stuffed animals. Is there a way to store/display them in my new place that is not completely childish, creepy, or ridiculous? [more inside]

Canoe storage in Seattle: what options are there for apartment dwellers who would like to own a canoe? One caveat- I don't own a car. This would need to be by the water. Are there marinas that offer lockers for small boats? Google hasn't helped me with this one. Any info would be awesome! Thanks.

I have several Scout
collapsible storage boxes that I picked up from TK Maxx. I would now like some more of the Hang Ten
type size, as they would fit the bottom of my wardrobe and make finding things easier. Does anyone know of any suppliers that will ship to the UK cheaply- or are preferably based here? [more inside]
