How do you store your cast iron/carbon steel??

Hey there,

I am wanting to pick up some carbon steel cookware and since it needs to be stored seasoned (slightly oiled? I've read that it shouldn't look dry), I am wondering how most people store this type of cookware?

Normally my cookware is stored stacked/nested in the cabinet (depending on what it is, sometimes with paper towel or some other barrier between them), but this doesn't seem ideal for seasoned cookware.... If I were to nest seasoned cookware then it would seem that grease would get on the outside of the pans, no? do people neatly store these so that grease doesn't get all over other cookware and/or a cabinet? I don't have space for hanging them.

Thank you!
