Seal the Deal


I have found the secret to how to make more hours in the day, keep wife/mom happy, not have to do dishes every day, and save money. How, you may ask? Before I tell you, let me warn you that it is very addictive, and you may need to buy another refrigerator or freezer. 

This all started out with my desire to save leftover food and stop food from going bad, but this little venture has turned into so much more than just sucking the air out of a bag. You guessed it, I’m talking about vacuum sealing our food. 

Let me tell you, this has become a thing, and one of those things that I wonder where it has been all my life. The funny part is, it’s always been around me, but I just never looked at it. Trust me, this is not just about leftover food anymore. I went to the store and bought and cooked so much food. I spent all day Saturday cooking everything: chicken, roast, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, cucumbers, salads, and so much more. I even made my own lunchables. 

Ok, I will be the first to admit that things got a little crazy, but here comes the good stuff. I have not just saved some food, my friend. I have “made time” and saved money. If I do all my food prep for my family in one day, I no longer spend time cooking during the week at all. I walk up to the fridge, look, choose, and then toss in the microwave for two minutes. I even already have it on a plate in the bag and use a plastic fork, so that means no dishes. 

As you can see, I don’t have to cook during the week and neither does my wife, the kids lunches are all made in advance, we don’t have any dishes, and we save money. Wow. Now you get my obsession. So, go and buy yourself a happy wife/happy life time machine.
