I get "dried albumen" from our local health food store and add a teaspoon of that to the fresh egg whites. Works great. Or leave them uncovered in the fridge. I've done that, too. But I could imagine ending up with fridge-tasting macarons if you have anything strong-smelling in there. The whites need to dry out, so leaving them in the shell won't be as effective.

Re leaving the egg whites out it seems weird to us new worlders, but apparently the egg whites hold the air better when they're not fresh (i.e. stay whipped). Can't bring myself to do it, though I suppose one could leave the whole eggs out of the fridge for the same effect before separation!
Heston Blumenthal does a section on getting the perfect whip into eggs in his series In Search of Perfection which is worth a look if YouTube or something provides!
