My 2 oz storage bottle has the tip cut off, and I don't seal it. The
sandwich baggies that I store paste in are uncut until I need to fill
some bottles. Then I thaw it and cut the tip and fill the bottles
and toss the sandwich baggie back in the freezer.
Cheap sandwich baggies are not airtight from what I understand, but I
do squeeze the excess air out and tie the top off.

I haven't felt the need to wrap in foil yet, no problems w/ unwrapped
baggies here.
