If they are vacuum sealed, you can just throw them in the freezer. If they've been opened, you can either reseal (if you have a food saver) or put them in ziplock feezer bags and squeeze the air out then stick them in the freezer.

What Yoop said; and if you want a little more info on why the freezing and air-tightness are important, you can check out this post.
