JAJAJAJAJA

screw it...he/she can suck it

im back, what was I thinking! ajajaja

now back to fun voyaging stuff:

I like sushi rice containers that are stackable too and they are clear....so you can see the stuff if sealed or not, water intrusion, mice, cockroaches, etc...etc...

we had a bad case of rice insects(forget the name in english, but gorgojo in spanish) and we had to dump quite a few lbs of rice overboard cause it was too bad to eat and sort through...

we also had flour go bad...

anywhoo vaccum sealing stuff is the way to do it nowadays...I have a cheap one I use at the restaurant so hopefully I will put it to use this hopefully upcoming small trip

peace guys

christian

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Has anyone vacuum bagged clothes? Will a small handheld vacuum be enough or even a hand pump? Like to store out of season clothes under forward bunk.

Glad you are staying on board... life is too short to worry about people who do this to build up their self esteem... instead life will be short for them.

My wife buys these bags for our winter clothes and also for winterizing the heavy blankets and sheets...

Buy Ziploc® Space Bag® 6-Piece Combo Set from Bed Bath & Beyond

I'm sure you can buy them at Walmart and other dept. stores...

Another option is vacuum sealing portions of meals for one day, this way you only open the package of food for that day only... we do this with the vacuum sealer in the kitchen... we have never had the insect problem except for one time when the bird food ended up with all sorts of insects... no more after vacuum sealing.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Mayo comes in a square clear plastic jar here in My little part of the world. The lid is a screw on . They make good water tight storage. The added benefit of being clear helps. You can also write on plastic with a black sharpie marker. This helps if you can only see the dark blue lid and not the clear jar.
Kind Regards , Lou

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

My wife puts rice, flour, beans, etc., in the freezer for 2 weeks before vacuum bagging. The cold kills the bugs that are present in most grains and cereals, and vacuum bagging keeps other bugs out. We've stored rice and flour this way for years, and no bugs.

no, no valve.

The top is a button. When you press it, it pulls the bottom panel to the top, expanding the seal around it against the sides of the container. It does take some effort to pull the top off when it's sealed.

Attached is pictures I just took showing the top button open and the bottom panel. The grey on the edge is the seal that feels/looks like it's made from silicone.
