I make my vacuum bags a little bigger than needed. I cut the end off, measure out what I need, then there is plenty of bag left to reseal. I also save any larger bags after being emptied, so I can put smaller amounts in them.
I some times re-seal a bag 5-10 times depending on how big it was at the start.
Actually I don't think even with the bags you will get ALL the o2 out. There is still some small nooks and crannies between the pellets. The only way to get it out totally would be to flush with co2 or nitrogen.
