Despite the best assurances of your moving crew (especially if they’re your best friends), don’t let them move your display cases as a whole unit. That’s the equivalent of counting on an Idiot’s Array in Sabacc. The odds aren’t in your favor.

While it may seem like you are now looking at spending as much on storing and displaying your collectibles as you spent on the purchase, remember that these cases and storage units are an investment in the future. You’ll likely use them again and again, and you may well make them a central part of your home.

You shouldn’t need a side hustle to pay for your display space, though it can help. Start small with inexpensive plastic display units and comic book bags, and move up to the bigger and more expensive stuff as your collection expands. Remember, when all is said and done, these collectibles represent our memories and our love of Star Wars.
