The article’s pushing a sale on a food vacuum sealer claiming it can save households $2700 a year.

That implies households are throwing out that much food every year.

The only time I recall “throwing” anything away was when I ditched a 3 year old small bottle of ketchup I’d not used. Or 7 year old Worcestershire sauce.

If Americans are that wasteful in their own houses they deserve to be broke.

If $2700 per year is saved at average stock market rates that means in 25 years that family would have an extra $180,000 in their savings accounts.

Food is important. Making sure you have food is even more important. You know what is one of the best ways these days to make sure you always have food? A vacuum sealer. As someone who does not enjoy cooking, I recognize the value in storing leftovers for as long as possible. Saves time, saves money.

Today, you can save even more money on this process. The #1 bestselling vacuum sealer is 41 percent off:

FoodSaver FM2000-FFP Vacuum Sealing System with Starter Bag/Roll Set, Black on sale for $46.99

The FoodSave vacuum sealing system can save you up to $2,700 per year. No matter what liberal journalists might say, that’s a lot of money! And today only, with this deal, you can save even more. This is what you call a no-brainer.

    Antz, it looks like you were right about my connectivity problems. I bought a vacuum
    sealer and (48) 5 oz woozy bottles last year in anticipation of growing some exotic
    chili peppers. I was going to bottle hot sauces using Ghost Peppers, Trinidad
    Scorpion, Trinidad Scorpion Moruga and Carolina Reapers.

    My aim was to torture friends, neighbors and family members. The surplus peppers
    were going to be dried, crushed and vacuum packaged. The problem was that
    these fuckers are hard to grow. Between damping off disease, transplant shock,
    too much or too little water, too much or too little desert sunlight, I was forced to
    put it off until next year.

    I have not bought bags in excess of the sampler pack I got with the vacuum sealer.
    My problem is what to do with leftover foods. Sometimes, they spoil before I can
    eat them all so I may purchase some larger bags.

    Why make so much at once? Buy smaller? Make less? Would that help?

    I guess I am just a cheapskate who hates to see anything go to waste. About the only stuff I have go bad is sometimes tips of romaine lettuce leaves or a couple of radishes go soft. I cook once a year and freeze everything in 3 cup tupperware containers that make for 2 servings, remove from containers and double foil wrap. Usually 21 different dishes so with the occasional dinner out or “pancakes for supper” they go into a 50 day rotation. I guess I am weird in that I do not mind eating the same thing either two days straight or every other day so nothing goes to waste. Not even bread. Or rice. Or pasta.

    While I agree that the $2700 per year is bogus, I use a food saver unit. I get off-brand bags at Amazon (about 1/3 of the branded bags, and just about identical). We buy our meat in bulk when it is on a good sale and I repackage in the vacuum bags. No freezer burn. Or, we will make a large pot of something (like spaghetti sauce), use what we needed for that meal and freeze the rest in meal size packages. We get 4-5 meals that way and only the first one required the work. I figure the cost of the bags adds about 10 cents per pound to the meat, but it’s still cheaper than buying it piecemeal whenever we want to use a chicken breast.
    So, saving money? Yes in that I get it bulk. But not $2700 per year worth because of bags.
