That's what I was thinking and I could build up a mylar before sealing it. I haven't started buying bulk yet and I could do single meal servings or only what I would normally use in a specific time. Do you have an idea of how long the food saver bags last before they start letting in oxygen?

I keep my extra oxygen absorbers in food saver bags and I haven't noticed any air leeching in for the past year. Mylar and food savers together are a redundancy. If one system fails, the other is still intact. It is not a bad idea at all.

Well, kind of what I was thinking. So as I collect food deals I'll just put then in the FoodSaver and move to Mylar lined buckets with oxygen absorbers . Where's the best place to buy Mylar?

I found the best deals on Mylar and refills for the vacume sealer on Ebay believe it or not. Oxy asorbers also. Check it out there are thousands of them up there

Here is a link on Amazon for 10 bags and 10 oxygen absorbers for $27. They are the 5 gallon size bags. It also includes free shipping. Don't forget to put the rest of your Oxygen absorbers in a food saver after you open the packet.

I would depend it all on whether or not the food you are storing is a fast perishable or not. If you use a Food-saver, then Mylar it inside or a bucket or something of the sort it should keep for years and years to come. I am still kind of new to this, but I have been doing tons of research on the matter. Goodluck I wish you the very best.
