    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.

    Hey Outbreak. I thought you'd appreciate a joke my 11-year-old told me the other day:
