How can I best store homemade blueberry muffins so that they'll last up to six days?

My lovely wife has taken to baking homemade blueberry muffins for me to eat at breakfast throughout the week. She stores them in a large plastic zipper bag to keep them fresh, but they get damp in a day or two and downright soggy within three or four days. At five days they'll show signs of mold.
She read somewhere that storing a few saltines in the bag will absorb the moisture and spare the muffins, but it didn't help much. If we leave the muffins on the counter, they're hard as stones in two days.
What is the best way of storing homemade muffins for up to six days?
