How do I keep a sandwich overnight without it getting soggy and gross?

Once a week I tutor for a family that feeds me dinner. Every week without fail, they get me a foot long sub. Super nice, right? I can only eat half of it while I'm there, so I try to save the other half for lunch the next day. Almost every time it ends up so damp and icky that I end up just tossing it and buying lunch that day. How do I prevent this?
I don't put any kind of liquidy stuff on the sandwich to begin with, so it's just meat, cheese, and veggies. I've tried all different permutations of keeping it wrapped in paper, putting it in a ziplock, leaving the ziplock open so the moisture can get out, sealing the ziplock so the moisture can't get in, varied temperatures in the fridge, etc. Is there anything I can do that will leave the sandwich edible the next day?
