When it Doubt, Buy it - Plastic Food Wrap

7 Comments

When it doubt, buy it. Costco will not over-charge you.

Case in study: Food Wrap by Kirkland Signature - $8.99 (double pack)

At first glance, you might think $9 for 2 rolls of food wraps is not much of a bargain. But take a look at this.

If you are lucky, you can buy a roll of food wrap for $.99 (from a 99 Cents only store). This roll contains a 100 SQ. FT. of inferior quality plastic wrap.

With Kirkland Signature's Food Wrap (double pack), you get 1500 SQ. FT of high quality plastic wrap. That's 166 SQ. FT per a Dollar.

So, with same amount of money, you get 66% more of high quality product.

But, that's not all
Think about helping environment.
In order to get 1500 SQ. FT. of plastic wrap, you need to buy 15 of $.99 rolls. With Costco's double pack, you are saving raw material to package 13 rolls.

Everyone wins with Costco.

So, when in doubt? Buy it.

Happy shopping.

** One problem with Costco's plastic wrap is that it will take extremely long time for me to finish up 2 rolls of these. It took me 2 years to finish 100 SQ. FT. roll. So, mathematically, it will take me 30 years to finish these up. I will be in my 70's when I'm done with these. My plastic wrap can out live me. Haha..

I guess some people use a lot of plastic wrap. I don't. I always try to use containers with tops instead of putting a wrap over the food. I try not to use plastic wrap as much as possible. They cost money.

You're right! This wrap is good quality and a good deal. We are a family of 3 and it lasted us a little over 2 years. 100 sq. ft. of Saran wrap is $2.19 per roll at Wegman's. Each Kirkland brand roll has 750 sq. ft. and costs roughly $4.50 - $5.00. You would pay over $15 for just 700 sq. ft. of Saran Wrap.

Can I buy it online? I received some of this almost 2 years ago and love it! I am almost out and would like some more. We do not have a Costco near us?

I don't see it available on Costco website.

I only see it on Costco "Business" website. You need to have a business membership for this.
