Now you got me thinking and I just won a vacuum sealer for a bit under $70 (postage incl.) on Ebay! Claims it will seal any bags and they sell bags quite cheaply on Ebay too.

Explore the uses of it, we do a roast at home, make too much gravy, freeze the left over and after its frozen Vacuum it.
then all you need to do is drop it in the bag in hot water.
The list is endless with these things.
Corn beef , reheated in a vacuum bag in hot water, same as the day it was cooked.
I am a great fan.

And you can seal food without the vacuum as well, Nuts, etc etc .Pasta,casserole,the list is endless.
They ( in my opinion) pay for themselves in freezing leftovers.
Do I sound like a fan? ROFL.

I find the plastic rolls/bags are way too expensive for me to use mine too much....but it is good when I do use it.

Aldi bags are usually half the price of the big brand stores.

The Aldi ones are too big for my vacuum sealer...I bought a roll and tried cutting it down...lot of trouble and not much gain.

OK, now you've also converted me Titch! Deals Direct have them but out of stock at the moment.

Do these things actually keep food fresh for longer without freezing? I have a fridge but not a freezer and wondering if it'll help keep say sausages and chicken fresh for a week in the fridge?

The vacuum beast must be very happy with you Titch!

So if sausages would normally keep in a fridge for say 3 days, how much longer would they keep with vacuum sealing them?

I've been trying to find some guidance on how long you can keep vacuum sealed food too, Dettie. But I'm yet to find a reliable source. I guess it's just going to be trial and error.

I did find this, but it's an Ebay seller, so who knows where he got his data from: http://reviews.ebay.com/Compare-Food-Sh ... 0008684299
