Reduce Your Food Footprint


People trying to live on a budget as well as people trying to reduce their carbon footprint are looking for ways to shop and cook to minimize food waste. The most common way to save on food is to buy in bulk and freeze what you do not immediately need. You will save money because bulk costs less, and you will not need to shop as often, which will help you save on spontaneous spending. Vacuum sealing is one of the best methods to use for storing food. The sealer pulls out all of the air in a special plastic bag, which creates a vacuum and seals it closed. Food that is in a vacuum-sealed bag will keep for a long time, and the bag will prevent the food from gettin freezer burn. There are several brands from which to choose, and here are vacuum sealer reviews of some of the best.
