First off, don't waste your money on a dollar-store knockoff. Just get yourself a Foodsaver. Otherwise you'll end up like booboo, with a burnt-out knockoff.
Second, the bags are always gonna be pricey---they're not cheap to manufacture - but you can get them in bulk at Sam's Club...and if you're careful, you can reuse them, especially if you're using them just for hops.
