pork back fat storage

How long can pork back fat be stored in the frig? What is the proper way to store it? It is not expensive so I have been tossing the extra but it would be nice to keep it on hand.

I vacuum pack it and store it in the freezer. Should be good for a year that way.

Hint: Cut the fat such that it will fit in your grinder, then portion in a standard quantity, so all you have to do is pull out exactly what you need and you can then grind frozen, or let set out a bit depending on your grinders power.
