Can the FoodSaver Really Save you Money?

We used to own an off-brand vacuum sealer, but honestly, I never took it out of the box.  I wasn't convinced that it would be easy to use OR could save me money, so soon after I bought it, I returned it.  This past week, however, I was given the chance to take the FoodSaver Challenge with a new vacuum sealer from FoodSaver to see just how much money I could save by using it to store food more efficiently.

I received the FoodSaver System model V3425 and several sizes of the FoodSaver bags to review and use in my kitchen.  I'll give you a hint:  I've already proven that I can save at least 5% on my grocery bill (and an unmeasurable amount of time and frustration with my regular food preservation routine.)
