Storing "Stinky" and Other Cheeses

Okay, I like the smell of strong cheeses, but I don't want the odor wafting through my fridge, being absorbed by incompatible foods. So, I need a little help here. I usually rewrap in parchment or cheese paper, then foil and, if necessary, place in plastic bag. I usually rewrap less "perfumed" cheese as well.

I often buy more cheese than I can use in a few days. I don't have a cheese shop or equivalent nearby (only supermarkets), so I buy cheese that will last me several weeks (and it's usually just me eating the cheese). Please don't suggest that I only buy what I'll eat in a few days--I don't have the time for a 2-hour plus round trip every time I want some unusual or artisanal/farmstead cheeses. So, any help for storing these milky blocks of nirvana would be helpful!
