Default Ideal Temperature to Store Yeast?

First of all I don't slant or freeze yeast (yet)

I'm just washing yeast and storing the jars in the fridge.

...but SWMBO doesn't want my jars overtaking her fridge!

I know that neither the yeast or myself will hold up very well if we're thrown out into the streets, so we must remedy the situation!

I have a little wine chiller that cools down to 45*F that would be perfect for my harvested yeast, but is that cool enough for the yeast have a nice long slumber?

...just found the answer

"The ideal storage temperature is 33° to 38° F"

Be sure to put it at the back side of fridge (not in fridge doors) since temperature is lower there.
