You had better sit down for this one.  To store geraniums over the winter follow these steps:

1)  Remove the plant from the container
2)  Gently shake the soil/media from the root area
3)  Put the bare root plant upside down in a brown paper bag
4)  Hang up in your garage, basement, crawl space, etc.(unheated)
5)  In the spring plant what looks like a dead plant
6)  Enjoy another seasons bloom

It might be a good idea to dust with a fungicide before "bagging" the plants as sometimes 
funky fingi will grow in the bag
