    mailing baked stuff

    Advertisements
    So i baked a ton of crap to send DH and his friends and i used to send them in ziploc bags, inside tupperwear, and then wrap the whole tupperwear in plastic. that used to work fine but now im worried since im sending them from east coast rather than west, that it will take longer to get there, since it has to go to the west coast APO before they ship it to him. anybody do anything special or different when sending stuff (besides using a vaccuum sealer. we dont have one).
    we kicked deployment #2's butt!

    Ziploc makes vacuum bags and a hand vacuum pump. They work awesome and aren't terribly expensive! Vacuum Bags - Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Freezer System

    It's not as great as the big sealers, but they do a good job and worked great when my husband was deployed!

    I was going to post a similar question...you are my hero of the day for this answer I just ordered this. I was planning to send DB some Christmas cookies in my next CP, but was afraid they'd get stale before arrival. Thanks OP for asking the question and thanks for the great answer!

    Put a half a piece of bread in the bag, it somehow goes stale before everything else and keeps everything else fresh for longer.

    I always stick a piece of bread in there-it's no vacuum but it "sucks" up some of the left over air you can't squeeze out if you're desperate!!!
