Thanks for the additional ideas Addie, will look into that.
I found some bags on Amazon that had good reviews, I ordered them yesterday, see the link below. Much cheaper than the foodsaver brand.

Will be taking my son to college tomorrow with a cooler full of food. He's tested the breakfast tacos and grilled meat, thumbs up on both.
So far he's taking breakfast tacos, grilled meat, red beans & rice w/sausage, meat loaf and spaghetti w/meatballs. That should get him started.
Thanks again for all the ideas.
