and keep them in a cupboard, away from light.

I hadn't heard about the apple. I find it helps to keep them in the dark.

Are you storing them in a cool, dark place?

I had some that were mostly green and returned them to tesco with receipt and got money back. (after we'd eaten the nicest of them for dinner!)

take them out of their plastic bag if you buy them packaged already.

Then store them in a cool dark place, preferably lined with brown paper or newspaper.

I have been wondering the same...Also they start sprouting within moments of going in the cupboard. Is it ok to eat them (I throw green ones out ).

Keep them in the fridge - they last for weeks then

Store them in a cool, (not fridge it affects their sugar levels and makes them soft), dark place, in a paper sack. Plastic will make them sweat and sprout. Ideally, if you want to store them for more than a couple of days, buy them unwashed. Peel muddy spuds under running water - its easy and clean.
