I have a vacuum sealer, and I love it! It does help stuff stay good better in the freezer, and like someone below, I love to put a marinade or spice rub on chicken breast. It self marinates when you take it out to thaw.
I have had issues once in awhile getting it to seal, but it's usually because I cut the bag too short and don't leave enough space. I think I got mine at Tuesday Morning (it's an upper class Big Lots) and don't remember what I paid. Rolls of the sealing bags/sheets are pretty cheap at Target and Walmart. My machine is a 'Foodsaver Vac 750'.
The fish that BF caught this year..he just freezes them in water in gallon ziplocs.
