Regarding Frozen Food Storage Times.
Prepacked meats like hot dogs, cold cuts are usually vacuum sealed. They will NOT keep at the times shown unless you wrap the package with a Seal-A-Meal vacuum sealer. I also do that for all meat from the store. It keeps the air away and gives a longer shelf life.

Since these are tips for Home and kitchen, I'd like to solicit some ideas for storing the queen-size foam topper that I got to put on the sleeper sofa bed. My visiting daughter said it does make the bed more comfortable for sleeping, but when the topper is rolled up for storage, it is so bulky and space-consuming. Does anyone have a neat idea for hiding the stupid thing?

attach velcro strips to the topper, on the side not slept on, and velcro strips to the bottom of the bed. Stick the topper to the bed underside and hide it there until it's needed.

The first of, hopefully, many more ideas.

Sorry to be dense, Chief, but don't quite get it -- did you notice that this is a sofa bed = folds back up into a couch? You got me at velcro, though, and I happen to have some. Hmmmm. Thanks.

Would one of those Space Bags work? The ones where you stick the vacuum hose in and suck out all the air, then you might be able to store it underneath the sofa.

Really don't know, Dawg. I'm trying to picture slurping the air out of a piece of foam. Not sure it's physically possible, but worth a look-at. Thanks.

If it won't fit on your bed then my advice would be to get rid of it otherwise every time you wrestle with it you will kick yourself for buying it.

Yeh, my bad. I missed the whole sofa-bed part. Sorry 'bout that.

I was thinking a space cube...and they will compress into a space bag. The topper I bought compressed to a three foot x 2 foot x 2 inch form. I think a cube would be easier to store in a closet.
