Default Rice Hull storage

I just got a bag of rice hulls to help with my sparge - is there anything special that I need to do to them to store them? Can I just leave them in the bag and put them in the cabinet?

I know its a dumb question but I just want to make sure

They won't spoil, there is nothing there to spoil. I put them in a large ziplock bag to keep them from getting dumped out.

Make sure mice don't get to them to make nests, I keep mine in my mash cooler. I also make sure mine are in something airtight so they don't absorb odors that may wind up in your beer.
