Cheese Chevre Shelf Life

How long does chevre stay fresh (once opened) in your experience?

So I am the only person in my house who likes fresh goat cheese, and as much as I like it I rarely make it through a packet before it goes bad. (I buy way too much food so there are always too many things competing with the chevre for my attention.)

I never seem to notice exactly when it goes off though. Does anyone have a sense of how long one can reasonably expect it to stay yummy-tasting after it's been opened? And is there any special storage method that might preserve its life a bit? I usually just keep it in the opened plastic packet, inside a ziploc bag, in the cheese drawer of the fridge.
