One to two years so far in airtight containers. If the smell is gone, then I just replace them. Mine are turmeric, five spices, red chilli pepper powder, sage powder.

If I bought and forgot to use them, as in unopened and vacuum sealed, they have been good to use even after two years. They are in a shady spot in my kitchen that don’t usually get direct sunlight.

I replace them when they are gone.  Some it has been years.

I helped my friend pack up her kitchen when they were moving and I noticed some old looking labels on the spices.  I asked her about those and she said "oh, yeah, I bought those when I was in NY City"......umm, that was over 20 years ago....but they got packed and she is still using them.

It's all well and good to keep them until they get used up, until one day you open a new jar and make a Really Spicy Gingerbread because your measurements were based on the old, lame spices! 

This is TRUTH. 

As I'm moving, I'm tossing--and old spices are not going with. Actually want to take some smoked paprika with me, and some chili powder, because I don't know how to ask for it in Arabic and I don't want to move without it! lol

Oh man, that’s a tough one. I would only be able to ask for “red pepper powder’ and I’m guessing that could be anything. Watch it be “babrika” or something easy like that. I know it’s USED, but not how to shop for it. I can help if you need parsley. ?
