Spices

How long do you keep spices for?  I think I read somewhere once that you should toss them out after three years.  I recently just looked through all my spices and tossed out everything that was older than three years- the picture above is everything that was chucked.  Feels like such a waste of $$.

A few years ago when I was a more organized person, I labeled all my spices with when I bought them to make it easier to remember when to toss them.   I eventually stopped because they are labeled anyways with a sell by or use by date.

Whatever this spice was, it was five years old before I tossed it. So how long do you keep spices for?
