I bought a few sleeves of canning lids. What is the best way to store them so they will be good for a few years if I dont use them all?

I would vac-pack them and keep them in a cool or temp stable area.
The newer lids that they make now are more shelf stable than the old rubber ones.. I have several boxes of the old rubber lined canning lids and the rubber is crumbly. Keeping them cool and dry would be the best(my opinion only here)
As far as I could find out from the company who makes canning lids they say that they are shelf stable for about 5 years but recommend buying new every year.. but of course they say that! buggers want ya to buy new every year cuz that is their job.
