Mushroom Storage

I recently came across a really good sale on mushrooms. And in my excitement over the deal - I, um, bought a few too many. Like 5 packages of mushrooms - that's a lot of mushrooms! When I got home I realized, "Oh my goodness! I've got to find a use for these now!" So, what to do with all those mushrooms? And equally important -- how to keep them decent for the longest amount of time possible?

Here's how I used them:
1 pkg used for steak subs
2 pkgs to make cream of mushroom soup from this recipe.
1 pkg sauteed and used in chicken casserole
1 pkg sauteed and served with steak for Valentine's Day dinner

In the meantime, I also discovered from America's Test Kitchen that the best way to store them is in the refrigerator in their original packaging. Don't take them out of their package until you're ready to use them. They stay fresh much longer this way.
