It all depends on how many hops you have and how long you think you will keep them.
Ziploc bags in freezer is good if you are only going to keep them for up to 6 months. Any longer and you should be seriously be thinking about a vacuum sealer.
I use a sealer when I initially split the packs, but after that (when they are in smaller packs), I use the ziploc hand vacuum sealer because it is handy (and cheap .... a few bucks).
Occasionally you will find a basic sealer on sale for about $25. Keep an eye on the equipment forum for people finding one.
