What is the best way to store an additional Mezuzah scroll? Somehow "in a drawer" seems wrong, but hanging it on a wall also seems wrong.

Unfortunately, I have need for a spare due to harsh winters where I live. I am obliged to check my scrolls more often because of ice covering the Mezuzah on one door.

    Is this a halachic question or a best practice for effective storage question. Please edit to clarify – Double AA Mar 15 '17 at 12:54

    If you are asking a halachic question, please also clarify your claim that storing it in a drawer is wrong. Where do you think scribes store their spare mezuzah scrolls (e.g., the ones that they haven't sold, yet)? – DanF Mar 15 '17 at 13:44

    Somehow "in a drawer" seems wrong. Not at all. Of course don't leave them I'm the drawer with the kid's crayons. – user6591 Mar 15 '17 at 14:20

I would suggest keeping your spare mezuzah scrolls in a Vaultz storage box. They should keep the scrolls nice and protected, because they both lock and have a cloth-like inside lining.

This sunglasses box might fit your needs. My favorite box they sell though is actually a vaping supply box (without the vaping supplies, of course).
