You don't need an air conditioner, you need ventilation.  Get fans.  You 
need to suck in drier outside air and blow out the damp inside air.  I 
would also suggest taking your stuff out of the closet and leaving it 
open.  If possible having the heat on would do more to reduce humidity than 
an A/C unit.  If you won't be there you don't care if it's cool.  You just 
want to dry it out.
