It's usually cheaper to buy in bulk but I'm single. So, I invested in a vacuum machine. The bags are boilable, microwavable & resealable. And I limit my trips to the store. Even cheese can be cut into smaller chunks & vacuum sealed for months! Meat , whole grain cereals, cheese, brown sugar, whole grain flour - anything that might go bad or get bugs can be shrink wrapped! Food stays fresher, longer & I save money!!

    My DW and I are now retired and both sons have their own families. We seem to have a problem cutting recipes in half (how much is half a pinch?), so I think it sounds like a vacuum machine would be a good investment.

Thanks for passing along a really good "Secret".
