To freeze and vacuum seal foods, try this no cost vacuum sealer.
Get a large enough bowl of water that will fit what you want to freeze. Zip package partway closed, leaving a small opening. Push out air. Slip baggy into the bowl of water until the opening is just above the surface of water. Gently squeeze out remaining air. Zip close. Dry with towel, place in freezer. Wala, a protection from air for your hard earned food!

I use a straw. Zip up too the very end, suck the air out, then '''simultaneously''' pull the straw out, and zip shut. It should be ''air tight'', or do it till you get it right, lol. Pretty easy.
Vacuum sealers and their bags are really expensive. Here is how to seal food without one. Not only do you save money by not buying a sealer, but this method pushes out all the air, which eliminates freezer burn, and lets you store frozen goods longer.
