Yesterday while out running errands, I ran into Kroger for one thing. You know how that goes . . there are always more things that jump into the cart. As I was passing by the bacon area, I noticed one of the bacon brands that we like on sale. The bacon was in big (2.25 pound) packages but it was on sale for about $3.50 per pound. I grabbed five packages.
With the FoodSaver, it was a snap to vacuum seal all the bacon into smaller packages.
The bacon was put up in 3/4 pound packs and I got three packs from each large package so we have 15 packages of bacon on the freezer now.
This is one of the best ways I find to save money on the grocery bill . . by finding items that are on sale or packaged in big packages that sell for less per pound and can be broken down into smaller packages at home.
The price of bacon is outrageous and we eat it fairly often so this was a great find for us.
