DIY way to keep tobacco fresh?

Big fan of rolling my own smokes. One problem: tobacco dries out too fast. (Curiously, I never had this problem with British rolling tobacco, but any tobacco I've bought in the US seems to dry out real fast, especially the big tubs, which I've started buying -- pouches run out too fast, and it's a pretty long walk to get more.)
So what's the best way to keep it fresh? American Spirit advertises some kind of disc, but that seems like a waste of money; there must be some DIY way. I've heard apple peel works well, but I rarely buy them, more of a banana guy. Cotton balls soaked in water, too, but that seems to be something else I rarely have lying around.
It seems to me that anything moist should do the trick. True or false?
