Default Vacuum Sealing (Your tips) and tricks

This thread has spawned from the earlier request about cheaper vacuum sealing bags. I got to searching the Interweb for more tips and tricks. There is alot out there. Please use this site to post things you have done with Success and not success... I will go first:

Went camping and efore we left I made Biscuits for BnG's Created a bag put them in after cooled in ziplock bag then Mada bag and put the Buscuits in there and just sealed it not Vacuumed. Was able to keep them in the cooler without getting them wet. Also did similar things with our clothes to keep them dry.

Went to dollar store and got 30 hard plastic non throwaway plates. After a large meal made extra on purpose get out some plates and make homemade Teevee dinners. For example Thanksgiving afterward plate up some turkey smooshed taters and a veggie Prefreeze the plate and vacuum sea! Tevvee dinner for later.

What have you all done?
