Where can I safely store my stuff?

I don't have a house yet in Skyrim. If I leave my junk in a chest in a dungeon, will it remain there indefinitely? Will it disappear at some point?

This question has been asked before. Check… for example. – Konerak Nov 14 '11 at 15:45
@Konerak That question asks where to store items. This question asks if it's a good idea to store items in chests scattered throughout Skyrim. – Ian Boyd Nov 14 '11 at 16:12
@Mana le sigh – Ian Boyd Nov 14 '11 at 16:20
@IanBoyd I'll reopen if you think so, but I'm uncertain of the difference. "Where can I safely store my stuff" implies that a good answer will cover where it is both safe and unsafe to store your goods. – Mana Nov 14 '11 at 16:30
@Ian anywhere that's not safe to store items is, by default, unsafe, is it not? Since a random chest in a dungeon wasn't the answer, then its not safe. – l I Nov 14 '11 at 17:21

Your items are not safe - I believe it takes less than 48 in-game hours until the items disappear. The good part is they allow you to start off with a good amount of space in your inventory to hold everything.

Hope that answers your question.
