I live alone and don’t cook a ton, but I like having potatoes on hand for side dishes whenever I do make a dinner. I don’t shop frequently, usually once every 10 days to 2 weeks or so so when I do buy things I tend to opt for the larger size. When it comes to potatoes I always buy the 5 lb bag with the intention of hanging onto them for as close to 2 weeks as possible.
To the point, how the hell do you store potatoes at home? Mine have a habit of sprouting within a day or two of getting them home from the store. After a week they are ready to be planted and inedible. It’s annoying, I know to put them in a cool dark place but apparently the cupboard that gets opened the least isn’t a very good analog for that. What’s a apartment dweller to do aside from hitting the store every 3 days and buying individual potatoes.
