Looking for ideas and suggestions that would let me keep bananas for up to 6-7 days.

I have searched the internet and previous AskMes with no luck. We only go grocery shopping once a week. I'd like to be able to eat one banana a day, but they tend to go bad after 3-4 days.

Sometimes there are 4's, but usually the grocery store only has 5's. In my dreamworld, I like to eat 6's but am happy to have a 5, 6, or a 7. I am only making it halfway into the week before there are flies or the consistency is way too mushy. So far I have tried hanging them up and then I tried separating them. Otherwise, I leave them uncovered in a bowl in the kitchen. I'm willing to try anything within reason. Is there a way to keep my supply of bananas going beyond the middle of the week?
