Make dried herbs and spices last longer by putting half of the amount into a sealed, airtight container when you purchase them. Label the container and keep it in your freezer. When the spice on-hand loses its aroma, replace it with your stash in the freezer, and you’ll never have to be irritated about throwing away that unusable mustard seed or marjoram again.
