I just ordered https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

these for $17, two 8" x 50' rolls. They got 4+ stars just like the brand FoodSaver bags but are a heck of a lot cheaper. We need to restock as I used all the 8" rolls we had from Craig's Grand Salami, and had to start on the last 11" roll we had too. I'll wait and see how these work and if they live up to their reviews before buying the 11" rolls.

I am using the 11" bags way more than the 8". In fact I have two rolls of 8" material left, yet had to buy more 11" because I had some racks of ribs to vacuum seal.
I roll the ribs up and tie them. Then vacuum seal them. The 8" bag is to small and I rarely use 8".
I really like the quart bags. Perfect for three chops or one thick cut steak.

I am going to try and use the 8" more as I have now found yet another 8" roll in the back of the storage cabinet.
That makes three, never used 8" rolls.

My quart-size freezer bags are 7"x7.75".

I assume mine are too. I guess just using a longer piece off the 8" roll would give me the same thing as a quart bag.
For some reason I rarely use the 8" rolls.
I'm certain after this discussion, those 8" rolls will get used.
