impulse sealer from the church distribution center in November or December. In January, we went to the bishop's storehouse and purchased wheat, beans, and oatmeal in bulk. It has been sitting in big bags in my garage since then, waiting for me to do something with it. So, after talking to Mom (who also bought bulk food in January and needs to package her stuff) suggested that we start work. As it turned out, Mom and Dad had some things come up that evening, but I decided to start by myself. The above is the sealer the first time out of the box.
Mom came over after a while and helped me, and it was fairly short work with her help. A finished bag (with label) looks like this.
