I was wondering whether I should get one of these food saver vacuum systems, since I plan to freeze a lot of food. Any thoughts? Which one is best for the money?

Thank you, peimum, for my beautiful siggy!

I've never owned one, but a friend who has one said that it's too expensive to keep buying the special freezer wrap and that it's pretty much a waste of money.

Personally, I always have the deli people at the grocery store wrap all my meat in 1-lb packages of freezer paper. We don't buy freezer foods or frozen veggies (fresh only, we're spoiled), so that's pretty much all we have in our freezer. Meat and breastmilk, lol.

I don't have one either... for the reason that I can't see myself spending so much on the refills.

I buy lots of something at a time, and then bring it home and separate into portions for each dinner, wrap in plastic, followed with foil, label it, and put it into the freezer bags. I get all my stuff for that at the dollar tree. It's decent quality, and using the combination works great for us. Sometimes I have some things in the freezer for a few months.

I have one and I think it's the BEST! Yes, bags can be expensive but they are cheapest at Sams and WalMart and you can use most of them over.

I have found them to work better than regular bags for all the dinners I cook and freeze, extra meat I buy, and the veges I pick from our garden.
