    I find that sturdy brown paper sacks work well and keep potatoes fresh for months if stored in the dark (I use ones that previously contained 5kg of flour). The fish and chip shop I used to work at back in the UK gets their potatoes delivered in such sacks. Spreading potatoes out on newspaper and drying them in air (not direct sunlight) for a few hours before bagging them also helps to preserve them.

      They are already stored in rice bags we bought at the local agri. center, the trouble is the the FIL AND MIL have said potatoes need to be in boxes covered with paper to let them breath.
      I agree about the bags, we did the same in the UK, potatoes lasted months and months.

        They're being a bit cheeky considering the importance of the potato in the British diet! It's like you telling them how to prepare sashimi!
