Fundj,  I use bottles for all preserves as I don't want to use the space in the freezer.   I often make jam while I am cooking tea.The TMX makes 3/4 jars and I can cope with this amount while doing other things.  I also bottle fruit in the Microwave ,  for the same reason.  I have posted the method on my Blog.  Sorry,  still haven't taken the time to learn to link.

Yes Kathryn. I do draw the line at wrapping my own presents though  :D I leave paper scissors tape etc out with my present and DH wraps it generally prefaced by ' what did I get you?' lol

DH and I do the same though. If it wasn't for the kids it would just come into the house being noted that it was for that pressie but the kids love the excitement so we purchase things, bring them home with the comment "this can go in the cupboard for my b/day, xmas. fathers/mothers day etc)  :D

As you know I was already to buy this but found out today that I need 7x 1/2 meters of fabric for my chair that I bought back in July :P Good fabric isn't cheap,so my purchase for the vacuum sealer has to be put on hold,well maybe until I can sneak it on my credit card. :-)) :-))

 have been thinking for a while that this would be useful to get
is everyone who brought a vacuum sealer from the link from amanda from ebay still happy with there machines
l saw that the sale finishes 30 sept
can you use zip lock bags in the vacuum sealer or do have to buy special ones

Yes I am very happy with mine ahoney.  It comes with loads of rolls/bags and I'm not sure on your other question re using ziplock bags.  Maybe someone else has tried it but I wouldn't be game. When I bought mine it was only supposed to be going for a few more days but I see it is still on there with another 'buy before' date.  With a few of us having bought this machine, I'm sure someone is going to do the homework for us and find out where to buy the cheapest bags when we need to replenish our stocks.  Mine will last a fair time though if I don't go lending it out  :-))
