How do you guys keep silver cufflinks from tarnishing when not in use?

They say that tarnishing only begins and advances when you do not wear them.
Yes, I only wear a french cuff shirt from time to time and every silver cufflink I have ever had ends up a tarnished ugly mess next time I fish them out of the drawer. Makes me inclined to stay away from silver and go with some other metal.
I asked my wife, a jeweler who works mostly in sterling silver, and she said, "it's the nature of sterling silver to tarnish. Tarnish-resistant jewelry bags exist and may help. Wipe them every now and then with a polishing cloth and they'll be fine."
