100% cheaper would be free. 150% cheaper would mean the store is giving you 25 cents per bag to take them.
Okay ~ my head hurt trying to think about it originally so thank you.

You're welcome! So glad to help!!

I think it only recently came out sometime this fall. Didn't see or hear of it during the summer.

I caught wind of it in the commercial on the Food Network. Like I did with Dawn Power-Plus about 4 years ago.

Glad you found one and like it, though!! You'll probably NEVER go back to what you were using before!

Soon as I'm low on the bags, I'm right back at Shaw's getting more!! Yeah, I've been to that one (Shaw's) before. And it IS kind of weird.

I have had one for a couple months now and I just love mine. I have not had a problem yet with it. I reuse the bags over and over.

Good! Glad to hear it.

Technically, you're supposed to throw the bags away once they're empty, but who's gonna know?

If you think you can get much more milage from them that way, then why not? This unique little invention; Boy! That's money!!

OMG!

I guess they figure that most people will be using the machine and bags to package things like cuts of meat, fish, fruits and veggies - thinking that any bags smaller than the quart-size are not needed.

But I know what you mean. I'd like to see bags larger than the gallon-size as well!

I'd been thinking about it and sounds like I'll need to go ahead and get this little gadget! You know if you are looking for other size bags, notify the company. They probably figured they'd stick with the most popular sizes to start until they see how well the thing sells. Now that they know people will buy it and use it, they may expand their offerings. Let them know what you want and you could influence them in what they decide. If all of us here at DC bombarded them with requests they may get to it sooner than later!

I THOUGHT about that.

Yeah, if they get enough calls, letters or e-mails from peole telling them how good the product is and if they plan on making larger size bags for it, then THAT might do the trick!

In time, I got a good feeling that this little device will start flying off the store shelves once more and more people catch wind of it and how it will save people tons of money over those expensive bulky machines that use v/s bags that almost NEVER work.

I revisted the website and sent the co. an e-mail, asking about the possibility of them offering larger vacuum seal bags.
