Do I really need a food vacuum sealer?

samtron608 | Feb 24, 201110:42 AM     5

I know the advantages for buying bulk packs of meat...but what about leftovers? can I actually seal leftover pot roasts, other dishes with braising liquids, etc and still eat it a month later?

just trying to see if the costs of a decent food sealer is actually a good idea for me.

as for buying bulk meats, I dont buy at Costco. If anything I buy a 4 pack of steaks at the local market and cook 2 for dinner and then toss the the other 2 in the freezer. so basically that extra 2 steaks will sit in the freezer for 2 weeks max. in this case, would vacuum sealing really be beneficial?

What other advantages am I missing out on?

Thanks!
