Storing purple potatoes, or potatoes in general?

Lakewood, OH(Zone 6a)

Last winter I found a purple potato in a bag I got from a food pantry. I saved it and planted it in the spring, so now I have a whole bunch of purple potatoes. How do I store some of them for next year's planting? I am really enjoying the taste of these and want more next year!

Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

You need an area that is dark and cold, but not freezing... prior to the days of concrete basements, houses used to have basements that were ideal for this! This was the idea of a root cellar too (though I have no experience with one of these).

So.App.Mtns., United States(Zone 5b)

Potatoes, just like cabbages and apples, need to be stored "Cold and Moist" (32-40F and 80-90% Relative Humidity)
