Portion control is a great way to control your calorie intake when in a fitness routine. Use FoodSaver Portion Pouches to store single servings of meat and vegetables for a quick meal. Portioning meals ahead of time can help you stay on track and avoid overeating.


2. Travel Tips

There never seems to be enough room in your suitcase. Vacuum sealing is a great way to make more out of your limited luggage space. Keep items like socks and accessories together in small-portioned rolls. This also works to protect your clothes from potential leaks from your toiletries.


3. Safeguard Recipes

For years, home chefs and cooks have laminated recipes to avoid food stains and wear and tear that comes with frequent use. Your vacuum sealer can provide a layer of protection much like that of its laminating counterpart. Preserve your recipes by vacuum sealing them in small portion rolls. Any food that spills can be wiped right off!


4. Easier Ice Packs

Make your own ice packs by vacuum sealing damp sponges. This allows you to store a lot of them in the freezer but also makes it easy to put the flattened ice packs in lunch boxes, without the worry of leakage.


5. Craft Coordination
