Average MRE Shelf Life:
The average MRE shelf life is about 3 - 5 years. Depending on how you store them however, you can get up to 7 years (and some sellers even clain 10 years although I'd be wary of that).

How To Extend Shelf Life:
Store In A Cool Dry Place - If you store your MRE's in a cool place like a cold cellar for example, you'll get a longer shelf life out of them. It's not necessary to store them in a fridge (although that certainly wouldn't hurt).
Avoid Temperature Extremes - Don't store your MREs in very hot or very cold temperatures (no car trunks on a hot summer's day!). This includes even for the short term. Avoid temperature extremes as much as you can.
Buy Only From Trusted Sources - Don't buy from some guy selling second-hand out of the back of his van. You don't know the background of the MREs. He could be selling old product that is already expired.
