I normally find mylar bags cheaper than vac bags. A 5-7 gal mylar bag is about $1 a bag and I have a hard time finding a 1 gal vac bag for that price. Sure I still want to toss in an O2 absorber, but it's still cheaper and better.
That's about how we did it. We fill the bag and seal it leaving a corner open. Then toss in the absorbers, push out any extra air and seal. We tried the food saver, but it's not hot enough to make a seal and we tried the vacuum, but always let in some air before we could get it sealed so we gave up on it.
