Storing Green Onions/Scallions

Um...yeah...I have a question.

What is the best way to store green onions/scallions?

I have been unsuccessfully storing them in the fridge. First in a plastic bag with the end open...forget it in just a day or so, it gets all gooey and full of moisture. Then, I just tried to store it in the fridge without a plastic bag and the green parts gets all limp and only lasts about 2 days in the fridge.

I love to keep green onions in the house but, I don't want to have to run to the store everyday for fresh green onions. Ideally, if I could keep them say about a week at the most that would be great.

Any of you 'hounds have any advice for storing green onions/scallions to make them last a little bit longer than 2 days in the fridge?
