Opened hummus - how long does it last in the refrigerator?

While most hummus does not last long in this house, there are a few varieties I enjoy which only come in a particular size. I usually use the smell/taste test and it seems to last a good long while opened in the refrigerator but thought I'd get another opinion on how long until you toss it?
We get that humongo tub of Sabra at Costco sometimes. Stays perfectly good for at least 3 weeks.
I get the giant tub of plain hummus from Trader Joe's and it lasts 2-3 weeks opened until I eat it all, so I can't say if it would have lasted longer or not. I've noticed the difference in expiration dates to be as much as 10 days off from the front of the display to the back, so I always do the annoying-to-TJ's reshuffling of product when I choose one. Always go to the back like your mom taught you!
I am more paranoid than most and will throw out hummus that's been opened after 7-10 days. But then again, i live alone and do some serious double-dipping ;)!
I have actually frozen hummus before, and just let it thaw in the fridge.
Maybe buy the big one and take out the portion for eating in the next week or so and freeze the rest.....
