Is there any convention for storage of Safe-class SCPs? I've seen some that various researchers keep in the bottom drawers of their desks, and some with their own rooms. How does the Foundation store reasonably stable, safe, objects?

Well, generally as long as they're confined safely, with a definite bead on their location, they can really be stored anywhere, so long as there isn't any chance of them getting lost or stolen.
Basically in not critical storage area's unless they're being studied, used for something, or have extra-ordinary containment procedures.
Okay, but what exactly do you mean by "not critical storage areas?" I could walk around with the Cologne of Increased Physical Attractiveness in my shirt pocket? Surely there's some sort of established convention as to where we stash these things? Should I just leave it vague?
I mean, check the Secure Facilities Locations. There's a bunch of units there that contain things that we keep simply for them to not freak out the general populace.
If there's nothing wrong with the item, you'd keep it in a locker, or a cargo container, or in a crate or something. Whatever it'll fit in.
If it can be stored like a regular object, then you can treat it like a regular object with regards to storing. It's that simple.
Locker, gotcha. That's what I was thinking of. I was just thinking that there have to be some guidelines on where to put this stuff. I don't really have a clear mental image of an SCP facility, so I wasn't sure where Safe-class stuff would actually be put. I didn't think they would just leave them lying around, or stuffed in various containers. There'd probably be a big room full of drawers, or something. Perhaps it would be easier just to specify a Site and get on with it?
