Are you thinking long term or short term? What I mean is...are you making a giant batch to last for weeks or a regular 12-24 that will be used up within a week or so?

If you are making a ginormous batch, I would place them on a cookie sheet and freeze them, then store them in sealed ziploc bags. If you are only needing to keep them a short time I've found my Tupperware container to be the best bet.

I'm thinking short term...will eat them within a week. Do you refrigerate the Tupperware container?

Nope, I leave it on my counter. Rarely does baking last past 3 days here.

Thanks! I don't have Tupperware but I have glass containers with plastic lids from Crate and Barrel. Hopefully those will do the trick.

Do they have an airtight seal?

I think so. Do muffins dry out in containers that aren't airtight?

Yes they do. They get to be large hockey pucks, and stale ones at that.

What kind of Tupperware container do you have? The container I have isn't tall enough for the muffins I made.
