Sephora, do you not live in an air-conditioned house? We get killer humidity here in northern Virginia too, but it's not that bad inside. I keep mine in a basket in the cabinet under the microwave counter and it hasn't wrecked my potatoes yet unless I buy too many at one time like you might be doing.

The sand thing sounds like a good idea. Let us know if that works for you.

Space is definitely the answer in my house and when you get home at 6 you don't want to wait for things to get to room temp before cooking. I'd be eating at 8:30 at night.

I do admit, I was told by my 7th grade home ec teacher to never put a potato in the fridge unless it was cooked. Never asked her why, just never did it. I'm betting GB's reasons are why. My mom had space to keep them under one counter but the only under counter area I have that might hold them gets direct sunlight all day and is about 90 degrees by mid day. It's also next to the dishwasher so that can't be good.

My house is air conditioned, but I have a high vaulted ceiling and my kitchen never cools down like the rest of the house. No one's home during the day so it gets to be about 77 before my daughter comes home and turns on the air. The kitchen is always the warmest room.
