Seal Food Using A Recycled Plastic Bottle

Cut about 2 inches below a plastic bottle with cap. Put left over food in plastic bag to store in refrigerator. Pull the plastic up the neck of the bottle and close cap to keep it air tight. Keeps food extra fresh. Can also be used the same way for storing blankets, sweaters, art supplies etc.

I think she is saying use the top 2" of the bottle as a funnel that you can make the bags airtight with. It's like it draws out the air and then you seal the bags. For the bigger ones, like you can get at the Dollar Tree or even just garbage bags, you can draw the air out then seal it better.

I read this over several times and figured it out. It is exactly as she says. Recycle the bottom part of the bottle, it is not needed. Fill your plastic storage bag with food. No need to zip it. Bunch it at the top and push up through the neck of your plastic bottle. Fold down over the top of your bottle.

Now, grab our cap and twist closed over the plastic for a very tight capping. Is this correct macie 4? I'm just re-restating. I'd heard this method before, but have never tried it. Yet.

I had to do some thinking but the light bulb finally came on. Pictures on this one would be nice but I finally got it. Neat trick.

Sounds like it would take up too much room in the freezer if I'm understanding this correctly.
