Default Fishing line shelf life?

I'm looking at respooling my reels and see how good the prices are for the 3000 yd spools. If I have some left (which I certainly will), what's the shelf life of the balance? How would I store it?

Your line should have a born on date on it. LOL

Cool, dry, and dark should be the primary concerns for storage to maximize shelf like. Several years with optimum storage conditions is not unrealistic.
