I'm in south Florida and I wonder what items won't get destroyed in left in an outside shed.

I live outside Houston, TX and basically keep anything I want in our shed. I don't keep things like pictures, electronics, or clothes out there and so far so good.

Yeah I don't know about things like that. I can't think of any small appliances we might of had out there. I have some power tools out there that fair fine.

I keep "shed" items in the shed, things like the lawnmower, snowblower, weed eater, gas, oil, lawn care stuff, shovels, tools, camping stuff, Christmas lights, some coolers, our bikes, pressure washer, etc. I also have a turkey fryer in there but that is about it for "house" items in the shed. Not sure I would keep household things in there due to bugs and stuff. Any particular reason you are asking about keeping toasters and blenders in the shed?

No, just curious as to what items would not be ruined out there.

Anything that wouldn't be affected by humidity or long periods of heat. I'd think that any cloth-based stuff would get moldy. I always hear that cockroaches love electronics, but I'm not sure if that means stuff that's powered up or just things with electronic components.
