Review of Kirkland Signature Kitchen Garbage Bags

by StevenHelmer

I purchased a box of these this past weekend. Read to find out if they were worth the money.

Product Description: Draw-string-style 13-gallon kitchen garbage bags from the Kirkland Signature brand. I purchased a box of 200 of these garbage bags while doing some other shopping at Costco this past weekend with the intention of using them in our kitchen garbage can and have been using them for the past few days.


I used my last kitchen garbage bag this past weekend and, since my wife and I were planning on running down to Costco anyway, decided to hold off on purchasing more until we did. While there, I was able to find a large box (200 bags total) of the Kirkland Signature brand for around $15 and, not being one to pass up a good deal, decided to make the purchase.

When I bought these bags, I did so while having some hesitation. I've had nothing but pleasant experiences with this brand in the past. But, I was recently burned by another bargain brand of trash bags (we couldn't even put them on the can without them ripping) and, because of that, did have some doubts. However, as it turns out, this purchase was a pretty sound one.

One thing I noticed right away about these bags is they actually fit our garbage can relatively well. Most other bargain bags we purchase don't quite fit properly and bunch up as a result. That was definitely not the case with this brand. The bags fit our garbage can snug enough to prevent slippage while not bunching up.

The bags also seem to be reasonably strong. I don't like wasting garbage bags (I hate the idea of buying something I'm just going to throw away) and tend to stuff them as full as I can possibly get them. As a result, I need a bag that can withstand that kind of weight. Not all bargain brands (including the last one I purchased) fall into this category. This one definitely does and even the drawstrings (which are usually the first thing to break) hold up under the weight.

Final Opinion

I was able to find a lot of bags (probably enough to last me the rest of the year) for a reasonable price and they turned out to be some of the better garbage bags I've purchased. What's not to love about that? If you have an opportunity to buy this product, I do recommend it, especially if you have had no luck with bargain brands in the past.

StevenHelmer, Thank you for product lines, pretty pictures and practical information.
In particular, I appreciate knowing about products that look nice and work well. I buy what is in burnable or recyclable containers so I generate no waste. But I like to know about garbage bags for the other things that they do, such as holding possessions to be moved and leaves for bonfire celebrations.

Would they just be in the one color or would there be other color options, such as orange?
