One thing I learned from this list a couple of years ago is that green beans will go back over a period of a year or two, just as any other agricultural product. 

MiKe recommended vacuum packing green beans and putting them in the freezer. When I do that I can’t tell the difference between fresh bought beans and those that are a year or two old. Worth trying.
