Keep away from wet. I am in a dry climate....

I just fold/seal the top of the bag and store in an old extra 5/gal bucket.

Put them in a trash bag and wrap up tight away from moisture. That said, I have a bunch of bags of stuff just like that that i toss every few years!

Look for an airtight "Rubbermaid" or "Tupperware" container big enough to hold the bag, and store it in there.

They both make Flour bins that are large.

I keep a bag of setting compound anywhere from a few weeks to a yr or more. I've never done anything other than fold over the opening in the bag and store it in a dry place. Never had any issues. I'd be a little concerned that storing in a plastic bucket would have issues with condensation.

The only condensate that will form in an airtight container, is whatever is in the air that is left after filling the container.

Which will be maybe a small drop of water, and if it makes a lump , said lump is easily tossed whenever the stuff is used again.

Suggest putting them (bag or box or can or bin) in two layers (double bagged) plastic leaf bags, trash bags, kitchen bags, or even plastic grocery bags depending on size. Two or more in one bag is okay. Add dessicant pack if desired and available. Squeeze out as much air space as you can, then use twist tie to close the bags.
