[Sca-cooks] seal-a-meal clones

Hint: Almost ALL seal-a-meal clones will use the Generic bags available 
at Target, Kohl's and if you have them, Farm & Fleet stores. We have the 
Black & Decker "Fresh guard" model but never buy the Black & Decker bags 
because, 1) we can't find them, and 2) they are too expensive when we 
can find them.

Don't believe the hype on the side that says "only use our bags" or 
whatever text is there. They are just trying to put more green in their 
pocket. Keep that green for yourself and find generic bags - they work 
just as well. :)
