FoodSaver® FM200 Vacuum Sealer Giveaway

This post is sponsored by FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
With a family of 5 we almost always buy our meats and cheese when they are on sale to help save money on our grocery budget and for the convince of not needing to run to the grocery store.
With the FoodSaver® FM200 Vacuum Sealer it helps our groceries stay fresh longer by removing all the air from the bag leaving a nice airtight seal.
I find it quick and easy to use.
We buy lots of meat in bulk but I hate how it always ends up freezer burnt after only a few weeks in a normal freezer bags with the FoodSaver® I no longer have that problem.
I can't wait for the next time we buy half a cow or Colt and the boys go fishing to be able to keep our food fresh for longer.
FoodSaver® saves us time and money by preventing freezer burn and extending the lifespan of our food.
For more information please check out the FoodSaver® Website.

  4. I like to make large batches of soups and stews and freeze the extras for lunches to bring to work. I don't like the frost that I get when I freeze things in jars or plastic containers. Thank you for your generous giveaway offer!

  5. Almost exactly the way you do! I buy large amounts of meat and cheeses when they are on sale and then I divide them - some into smaller portions and some into larger - to share with my mom for instance a large roast could actually be split into 3 small roasts for her and her next door neighbor who almost always share supper. Anyway, this food saver would be PERFECT for that! Thanks for the opportunity!

  7. I would save lots of money by freezing individual meals from the left overs. My 4 daughters are still picky eaters as a teenagers, this would give them some variety if they don't love what's on the "menu" for the night. This would be a great holiday gift for me....and my budget! Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. I'd use it several times a week I'm sure! I buy large packages of meat cheese crackers snacks and much more. My granddaughter complains sometimes that her snacks are stale. And the freezer I'm using is my moms old one and it's not frost free. Freezer bags don't work very well. Thanks for the chance!

  24. I've heard such great things about FoodSaver and have been after one for ages so would be thrilled to own this beauty! I'd be able to ditch my old bulky plastic containers which I currently use for leftovers and would gain much more space in my freezer. I also want to use it for bulk purchases so I can make sure produce lasts longer and I don't have to throw anything away. More space & less waste = big win!

  25. We have a huge Farmer's Market here in Greensboro,Sandy Ridge to be exact and I would love to be able to seal and save some of the produce. It's so much cheaper and better tasting than anything I can get at the grocery store.

  26. I'd love to make meals ahead and freeze them with the Food Saver. I recently participated in an exchange of freezer meals with 6 other friends-- we each made one meal 6 times and then shared it with each other person. I came home with 6 new meals and loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh I totally want one of those. I throw veggies in the freezer all the time, oh and cheese, oh and stuff for dinner. Yep, that'd be cool to have!

  28. Hey Serena! I would freeze meats and quick breads when I double the recipe. I have a few breads in the freezer now that probably aren't that great because I didn't use a Food Saver.

  29. I hate to say it but we waste a lot of food. I would use it to keep produce fresher longer.

  36. I really need this for the family to stop wasting so much food and to seal it to freeze it properly. So much food gets freezer burned and ends up being wasted. Which is throwing $$ out the window!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would use it to make make-ahead dinners

  39. I would use it to save leftovers. I usually cook enough to serve ten people - we have anywhere from four to eight people here on an average night. People like to take leftovers with them to work and school.

  40. I buy my meats at our local Amish market and I always stock up when things are on sale. Man, would this make putting those meats up so much easier!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This would be the best for freezing foraged fruit and farm veggies!

  49. I think sometimes I ask a lot of my vacuumed sealed bags, but they haven't let me down yet, and they have so much to offer. Sure, I bought a vacuum sealer originally to store food leftovers in the kitchen. But that was back when we lived on land, in a house. Since moving onto a sailboat and sailing the Caribbean, my vacuum sealer has been the answer to how do you keep things fresh and dry on a sailboat.

    First, for keeping food fresh, it's unbeatable. I put my leftovers in the bag, seal the bag shut and the food stays fresh until I'm ready to use it again. When I buy meat at the supermarket in bulk, I can easily separate and vacuum seal it into individual serving sizes. When it's time to cook, I just grab a bag. The bags are transparent enough to see what's inside, but you can easily write the contents and a freeze date on the outside of the bag. I even know of cruising friends who vacuum seal entire meals and just drop the vacuum seal bags into boiling water to cook. It makes for a very quick cleanup!

    Ice is a luxury on a sailboat. We can generally buy a large bag of ice, but after using it for a few drinks, we still have a lot left over. Hating to waste it, I began putting it in vacuum seal bags, sealing them up and dropping them in the bottom of my freezer. The bags are leak proof, so even if the temperature doesn't actually stay at the freezing point, I know I won't have melted ice all over my freezer.
