I'll be getting one myself.
Brettania, after saving that much money in smokes, you can afford a proper 48 liter dry cabinet. No need to go on the cheap

That money is already spent and in advance.

Recent purchases are a heat pump and I am awaiting the installation of my new 23" Philips LED monitor hooked up with a new video card which will give a max reso of 2560x1600 in DVI mode! I have also had to replace an external HD which crashed.

Should all be up and running in 24 hours.

I have also upgraded my software from PSP v.3 to v.4.

So not counting the heat pump that's about US$580.

That reminds me to get a big air-tight trunk for my strobes as they can't fit into the plastic tubs. I didn't even think about the trunk until you Blokes brought it up. In the tropics, humidity plays havoc with circuit boards as well. I plan to extend my strobes' shelf-life(s) by at least 15 years.

I bought my rechargeable silicon gels from local chemical suppliers. I rechecked my quotations and they are USD6.00 per kilo, not USD14.00. It's cheaper by leaps than buying from camera stores. The Chinese-made gels are quite cheap and reliable. I have been using mine for almost three years now and I recharge them at least once a month. On wet months, sometimes I have to charge them weekly. It's divided up into three parts for three tubs.

I had a re-look at my tubs, saw the label and price tag still attached and they are 7-gal tubs. Only USD5.86 per tub. ;-)
┐Location? Beats me... I'm lost on a far.far.away.tropical island.
