Got My Foodsaver!
Didn't even have to wait for Santa, or a trip to the U.S.
The 2240 was on sale here this week for $99, about the same price as on the FS website, give or take (a little less if you take into account the exchange rate on the Canadian dollar; a little more if you take into account our sales taxes; a little less if you consider the retailer's rewards program ["Canadian Tire money"]; etc. etc.).
Gonna get me one of them photo-cutting tools that kayskats recommended for cutting the bags nice and straight, and freeze me some sweet peppers! Woo hoo!
