. The mini-vacs that are used to clean computer keyboards should work well to clean the seal food, but you need to talk to a marine veterinarian about trying to vacuum seal seed.
.  Other than that, the others seem to be on the right track.

That is similar the "funny answer" I was resisting!

Have you seen this one? Looks like a good compromise between DIY and commercial solutions.

The easiest solution is to use a commercial vacuum sealer - the process is the same diy but a bit more complex.

Extract air from bag, seal bag with hot bar.

You can do it with different methods like jars.  A mason jar, with a small hole poked in the lid, and a piece of rubber taped over the hole can act as a one way valve.  Use a plunger-esque attachment to suck the air out, and the rubber will seal against the hole, keeping the vacuum.

"Funny answer resisted".

Home vacuum sealers have dropped to about $50 now.  Watch Cabellas or Bass Pro Shops for a sale and make out like a bandit.

DIY might not vacuum high enough or weld the seal tight enough.
