Dry powder storage

I finally got my first delivery of dry ferts. I now have enough fertiliser for years to come, so I need to store it well. Where do you keep your dry ferts? Is a tin box on a garage shelf a good container and place to keep the powders (which are all in small plastic bags)? Should I be adding dessicant bags to the box?

I noticed that the Potassium sulfate and nitrate are very fine powders, while the magnesium sulfate actually sticks to the bag. Is that because it is epsom salt (MgSO4.7H2O) and thus contains H2O? As mentioned, this is the first time I see the powders so I am just checking all is fine.

Thanks, Henrik

Mine live in the garage, still in their plastic bags, but in a large tin. In the same tin their is a small jar containing rice with holes stabbed in the metal top (to absorb any moisture).
