what i usually do is this.

put a layer of damp newspaper into a container. i use old chinese take away tubs.
put in about 10 worms.
put in another layer of damp paper.
pop on the lid and into the fridge.
change the paper daily and remove any broken/dead worms as they'll kill the good ones. after about 3 days you'll notice that theres less junk in the tubs and you can change the paper every 3rd day then.
they'll keep for a week to 10 days doing it this way

Freeze your dead worms as sometimes worms that are smelly sometimes outfish fresh!
