Romaine and Boston/Butter Lettuce Storage Question

Best way to store each of these in the fridge? I buy both fresh (not packaged). I always seem to be throwing them away after 3 or 4 days. I usually wash, spin and store in a covered pyrex---which is obviously not working! Thank you!

Don't wash until you are ready to use.

Wash, spin thoroughly, dry the rest gently, store in paper or cloth -- these all right on. What I like to do is leave the plastic bag open to some ventilation so I do not close the the zip lock or what ever other bag I use when storing in the refrigerator. In my experience, not washing can sometimes help, but when all is said and done, lettuce is a fragile product with a short shelf life.
