Paint can storage was recently addressed in another thread:

I don't want these to go to waste though, so I'm thinking of reinforcing the seal with some AF100 foil tape I have left over from doing duct work. Will post up results of that if I find them. After a week of being tipped at a downward cant, I think that'll be good enough to prove adequate seal.

An appropriately sized canning jar with a new lid sould have been a bonus here. After opening the O2 absorbers you can dump them in the jar and seal it up. They won't keep forever, but they should hold over for a while.
