How can I make my potatoes last longer?

Potatoes don't last more than a week in my apartment. There is no cool, dry place to store them - my pantry is just as hot and muggy as the rest of the place. Any tips on creating a potato-friendly atmosphere in there? Would sticking them in a dry Igloo container help? Or am I doomed to a potato-less summer?

I feel very silly asking this, since people have obviously been keeping potatoes through the summer long before the invention of air conditioning... of course, what used to be a cellar here is now a laundry room, and I'd probably get funny looks for keeping a barrel of potatoes in it.
