I keep them in their original vacuum packs, and if I open them, I expel the air from them and tape them back up, then put them in a double-seal Ziploc, also with the air expelled, at the back of my fridge.

Mine are all in the freezer. Vacuum sealed, in the freezer, actually. For the short term, the fridge is ok. For anything long term, the freezer is best.
