*Invest in a FoodSaver. Let me first start by saying, I love my foodsaver. However, I refuse to package meat in FoodSaver bags. I spend time finding deals on meat and when I use FoodSaver bags, there goes my savings. I use regular quart-sized freezer bags for the bulk meat I buy. What I love about my foodsaver is I can cook in bulk and freeze meals for a later date. This will reduce leftover throwaways.
