Best way to store cheese?

Hello Chowhounds,

What's the best way to store semi-soft cheeses like provolone, monterey jack, etc?

Since I dont use these cheeses all the time, I find it difficult to finish them off within two weeks -- even the smallest package that I buy lasts a few weeks.

Currently I put them in zip-loc bags and put them put them in the covered shelf of the refrigerator.

Even then they only seem to last 2-3 weeks at the max. After that, they start getting moldy patches.

Have also tried wrapping them in saran wrap, with the same effect.

Is there a better way to store them?

Thanks so much in advance.
