in a cool dark place with minimal humidity and be sure to rotate the bags everyday or so to prevent the paint from dimpling

Keep it somewhere that's about 65*-70* with little to no humidity. Move it every few days so it doesn't dimple.

keeping paint in the fridge causes the shells to contract quite a bit. When the paint is then brought out into warmer air the shell will expand and this drastic change will often cause the balls to lose their original round shape and will swell the seams

In your mouth like those fish that eat their babies. Then you'll be able to make sure your little siblings don't break into a bag.

get an average sized ice cooler...
line the bottom with some soft towel, foam or a blanket ...
put your pballs in a clean plastic bag and seal it..
(i use 2-gal ziplock freezer bags)
keep in a dry, cool area away from the sun...
rotate every so often...

keep the lid of the cooler closed of course!

HMCL281's suggestion of adding Silica Gel is a great idea too!
