Freezing the costs

I've had vacuum/sealing machines for years. And generally, it's worked great ... it's nice to package food up for the freezer ... though the vacuum part tends to go kaput before the sealing part.
But the bags are getting very pricey .. up to $8 for a small roll of plastic that seems to be getting smaller each time.

So, I just bought a box of gallon-size freezer bags for less than $3 -- that should take care of the food-freezing duties for a while.

I'm not getting rid of the sealer though ... it more than earns its keep by resealing packages.
