Nicolai thx, I like this idea. Vac pouch is flexible and I can see pressure build up!
Denny O thx, good timeline info. I just need a couple months probably.
I’m looking for a better way to store various sizes of vacuum sealer bags. I currently just stack them on my shelf in the bags they come in. I open one end and pull them out as needed. However, I find it a pain to put back any that I didn’t use and end up with a mixed up pile of bags. Does anyone have any storage suggestions? Maybe a specific type of bin or container you have used that you find helpful?
Cambro storage containers
Deepwoodsbutcher Paper storage shelves
Deepwoodsbutcher Maybe different size Tupperware that fit the bag sizes.
johnsbrewhouse hadn’t thought of that one. Thanks for the tip
bocephus this is where my mind went first too
Tex_77 I will have to look into this suggestion
This is what I came up with. 8.5x11 filing shelves with different sizes on each.
D Halverson looks very organized
This is the solution I’m trying out.
johnsbrewhouse Are you doing the paper shelves? Are they in folders? I am envisioning a file cabinet filled with vac bags, which sounds way better than paperwork! Can you send a pick of how that works? I am intrigued.
Jonathon The paper cabinets that hold different kinds of paper. I only have six sizes of bags. By the way the chamber sealer showed up today. The box was in perfect shape even with the FedEx women rolling it up the stairs. She always hates me when I have heavy boxes. She won’t drive down my hill, so she uses this little hand truck and walks backward down.

johnsbrewhouse Glad it arrived save and sound! Funny story, I saved a new Fed Ex Lady last night. She had headphones on and was paying ZERO attention while getting ready to deliver something. I had Brutus outside and I just happened to see her pull into my driveway. He was standing right on the side of her truck, hackle ALL up and ready to defend his property. I ran out there and grabbed him before she got out of the truck. I told her that when he is out please leave any package, no matter how big or valuable at the end of the driveway. When the other one is out just make sure he doesn’t run into your truck (done on multiple occasions) she was new so she didn’t know. My wife wants to try to make him ok with delivery people but I say he is doing exactly what I want him to do., especially since I wasn’t outside with him.
Jonathon The FedEx driver knows mine and the UPS drivers most all have treats for mine. He will bark before they show up, he hears the truck coming and knows they have something for him. Of course he is only 80 pounds, not like yours but I did have two Irish Wolfhounds before him that terrified the drivers.
johnsbrewhouse Love Irish Wolfhounds, they are such cool-looking dogs. When I was in NY running the beer store we had a customer who would bring his in sometimes and they called it Falcor and it looked very much like him, just not white!
Jonathon My dog soesn’t like the brown truck, he barks at it when it comes down the street. He only barks at Fed EX if he stops.
johnsbrewhouse I know you will gewt a lot of good use out of it, congratulations.
cdavis Thank you
Jonathon We would have gotten another pair, but at 2k each and having to wait between 6 months to a year for a puppies, we chose to get rescues. We always find litter mates when we have dogs. The Wolfhounds were purebred rescues. They are hard to find now.
