I prefer to store my spices in jars as the screw-top lid keeps them fresh. Whatever vessel you store the taco seasoning in, make sure it's airtight. Keep your spices in a cool, dry, dark place. A pantry or drawer is a perfect place.
When properly stored, your taco seasoning will stay fresh for 3-4 years. Since it's completely dry, it will never go "bad" or rotten, it'll simply just go a bit stale and lose its potency. Mark the date you mixed up your blend on the jar to keep better track of its age and give it the good old sniff test before using once it gets older.
