We don’t want to sound like an infomercial, but it’s the truth: one simple purchase really can save you hundreds of dollars. The value of the uncooked and uneaten food you throw away each week adds up quicker than you might imagine. In fact, we’ve seen some estimates that suggest 10% or even more of the money spent on groceries in some households ultimately goes to waste.

Instead of basically pulling cash out of your wallet and throwing it in the garbage, check out the Hamilton Beach 78213 NutriFresh Vacuum Sealer with 12 Bag Starter Set, which is under $70 with free express shipping on Amazon.
