How do I keep bread for more than a few days?

It doesn't seem particularly humid in my kitchen, but If I leave bread in a plastic bag, it stays plenty soft, but grows mold, sometimes within two days. If I leave it out, it gets stale. There must be a useful middle ground somewhere.
I'm not a big fan of thawed frozen bread. I've tried keeping it in the microwave when I'm not using it (which is most of the time), but that doesn't seem to help the mold problem.
Any tricks? Are there some kinds of bread boxes that work better than others? Do I just have unreasonable expectations about how long a loaf of bread (or rolls) should last?
