Clay Storage Question??

Any recommendations for containers or methods of storing used clay?

How do you keep the clay soft and maluable between uses?

How do you keep it from sticking to the sides of whatever container you put it in?

I assume something airtight is the best option? Like tupperware or zip lock bags?

I only keep a few used pieces around for wheels, the rest I pitch. But when I clay a car it usually really needs it. I have a few little containers (gladware works fine, but I use the containers the clay came with) and spray a couple squirts of QD or water in to keep the humidity up

I usually just wrap the clay in some wax paper, and put it in an airtight plastic container. Seems to keep well that way, but I usually stick to 4oz bars, so that way I don't have any lying around from year to year. It usually does get a bit hard, but nothing a minute or two of kneading won't take care of.
