these are what i put in my dry cabinet:

-camera body + grip + strap
-all my lenses
-all my filters
-receipts + warranty documents

that's all.

one thing to note, the rubber from my battery grip is starting to come loose perhaps due to wear and tear but i think maybe due to the low humidity in the dry cab also, causing the glue to dry up.

my flash and batteries i just leave them lying around on my table. don't put your flash into the dry cabinet cause' the lubricating oil(for zoom head) may dry up faster and the plastic may start to crack over time also.

You can put anything in the dry cabinate that pleases you.

Sometimes I put tea leaves in there.

This may sound odd but I keep unused razor blades inside there as well. Helps to keep them rust free.

Actually tea leaves are good. It help get rid of strange smell coming from your dry cabinet. pandan leaves can too. Sometime I place some charcoal in it too.
