Where exactly does one store a wig?

I've purchased one and there is another on it's way and it just occurred to me I don't have a place to put them (other than my head which only fits one at a time). Help/answers would be greatly appreciated.

I store mine in their netting in their bags or in their nets and in a plastic shoe container. I'm sure there are better ways to do it, but this keeps mine pretty nice.

Mine are stored in their original plastic bags and then put into random medium sized cardboard boxes (there are 5+ wigs in each box currently) which are spread in my room. lol It's not the most space effective way of storing wigs but it works so far.

I put many tissue paper in the wig and then put it into a box, well, before that, I will comb it and make it look nice. I think it's a good way to store them.

Mine are stored in the netting and plastic bags they come in. The nets keep them pretty tidy. If I were to store them on a wig head for an extended period of time, dust would collect as well. So yeah, just use the bag it comes in.

Yep, pretty much like others before me, I store mine in the original bag they came in...I had a wig that I stored on a wig stand by itself and the wig collected dust and the fibers became kind of brittle :/

For ones that aren't spiked, like everyone else I keep them in wig nets in their original bags (which then go into a plastic tub where they are all jammed together with no problems). For ones that have heavy spiking, I've put a wig net loosely around them and put them in a shoebox so they don't get squished.

I usually braid my wigs first, turn them inside out, place them in the netting that comes with the wig, and store them in gallon ziploc baggies.

My wigs are all in their nets in their bags except the spiked one--it's on a wig head.
