How best to store yeast?

I'm planning on stocking up on the yeast strips at Kroger. I have a bunch of coupons and I've heard you get a 50 cent onyo catalina for each one....so....

what's the best way to store yeast and how long ideally should they last before using?

TIA!

I buy bulk yeast and store it in the freezer. It lasts almost forever this way.

works absolutely fine for me. I put it in a little ziploc freezer bag and I've never had a problem with it working.

I bought 2 pounds of yeast (dry - 2 1 pounds cryovac blocks) about 6 years ago and have used about 1/4of it - I store it in the freezer - it will store that way for many many many more years - it always work just fine....
