Can you hang on to them for a couple years? Or you end up with a block of salt after a while?

Bought 10 bags from Richmond hill HD last night.

I asked someone to help put it in my trunk cause I pulled my back recently. I watched and counted 16 bags that went into my car....I did not say anything..... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've had bags across multiple seasons - occasionally I'll have a clump in an open bag if some water gets in there (or if I've used wet gloves to spread it, or if my garage is particularly humid from car melt-off/dripping), but I just break it up with a shovel and it's fine :) Normally though there's no issue.

Price match last night at Ellesmere and Warden Home Depot. I had to look for it at the seasonal area as the skid was still wrap with black shrinkwrapper. Should be still lots of stock. Last day of sale today from Lowes and price match.
Thanks, did the same. The skids are actually located inside the garden centre. 10% off extra for price matching. The cashier didn't even bother looking at the Lowe's ad, just asked me what the price is over there.

~1 year with a small contingency. I keep my driveway completely clear now after a snow fall. 2 young kids and pregnant wife. Can't risk any slips or falls.

Just for a tip. Mix with traction sand (https://kent.ca/18-kg-traction-sand-tube1024247) for a better grip. These bags @ kent go on sale for about 3$. I usually mix a 5 gallon bucket with sand and ice melter and it really makes walking on icy spots better.
And when you shovel the snow, does that sand not go all over the grass, or is it too little sand to matter?

It does but it's not enough to be an issue.
