Default Keeping Plastics Fresh

Just saw a quick clip on youtube and this pro was putting his plastics out of the bag and into his tackle storage. My question is, how long to plastics stay fresh out of the bag? It would sure save the aggrivation of always having to get out and open the bag just to change plastics.
Always coming to you guys for help,

I think as long as their not gulp or any other biodegradable type bait they should be fine. They have plenty of oils in them to not dry them out.

I keep some loose in my soft pack, they keep just fine for years and years.

Unfortunately, it appears soft packs are becoming a thing of the past, I can't find them at BPS, Cabela's, or any major place. Strange if you ask me, I love my soft pack. And I need more!

Cabela's sells binders with individual "ziploc" style pages, these work great for smaller plastics. My large plastics I keep in big ziploc bags, and most importantly out of the sun!

Yeah I was trying to fight the binders, I really love my soft pack, but I might have to give in and use a binder for my worms, I've just got too many to fit into my current setup.

Great info guys. The pro on mytube was laying them loose in a plastic storage box, each in their own compartment, easy to seperate and easy to get out.

I've seen them sold like that too. I thought about doing that, but I would end up with more utility boxes than I can carry, and I don't even have that big of a selection compared to a lot of people I'm sure.

It still blows my mind that they would stop making soft packs

I found one deal on ebay and that's all, looks like they stopped making them.  I'm bummed about that, I need at least one more for worms and one for jigs.
