My SIL has a vacuum food saver. Bought it when they lived in FL to keep the creepy crawlies out of her dry goods. Even though she lives near me in MA she still uses it all the time. She claims the food tastes like its never been frozen. I just plan most meals around the store's loss leaders each week and have very few meats in my freezer.
