Dear Folks,

I am so new at this and feel very behind. So far I have purchased a dehydrator, and a vacuum sealer. Fortunately I have always enjoyed putting up food, so no worries there...

However, I am finding the price of vacuum bags pricey, where do you all find the best deals for these preserving items.

I am finding now, that I would rather spend my hard earned $ on food and prep stuff than anything else...

Suggestions?

Many thanks...S

I get my bags for vacuum sealer or food saver at Sams, in the rolls...

I want to ask as well about Mylar bags... Can the one gallon ones be used with a food saver? Looks like they would fit, but don't know if the sealing strip would ruin the Mylar bags.

I have the Seal A Meal vacuum sealer, and in my machine, the heat strip seals the mylar before the vacuum can do its work. :gaah:

I don't know if the same thing will happen with the Food Saver. Apparently, the plastic that comes with the machine takes longer to melt/seal than the mylar does. :dunno:

Try here Our Products - SorbentSystems.com About as cheap as you will find. Its where I have bought mine for years. They also sell vacuum sealer bags that are heavy and are about half the price of Foodsaver brand bags.
