How Can I Keep Potatoes Fresh Longer?

Q: I live in a humid first floor apartment with poor ventilation and I cannot keep potatoes good for any amount of time. They sprout incredibly fast and get really mushy. Right now I keep them in a paper bag with a few holes punched in. The paper bag is in a wicker basket with onions. 

What are some good, inexpensive potato containers that will help keep my potatoes cool and edible?
