Costco Fans Say The Brand's 3,000-Foot Plastic Wrap Lasts Decades

There are many perks to having a roll of plastic wrap on hand. It's durable, lightweight, versatile, and cost-effective. But roll after roll can add up, and of course, when you need it most, you barely have enough to cover your precious leftovers (or worse, none at all). Thankfully, there's a solution to the problem, and the answer lies within the most wonderful shopping centers on earth: Costco. Fans of the discount warehouse store are raving about its plastic wrap that, for some people, lasts an entire decade.

Costco's oversized plastic wrap is worth every dime, and best of all, you won't have to worry about replenishing it for quite some time. Costco's signature brand, Kirkland's 3,000-square-foot Stretch-tite plastic food wrap only costs $20, saving you a significant amount of money and fewer trips to the grocery store.

So, what are people saying about this popular plastic wrap, and why should you pick up a giant box during your next Costco outing? A Costco Facebook group will tell you everything you need to know.

What are fans saying about Costco's 3,000-foot plastic wrap?

Costco is notorious for selling bulk items at a great deal, which is why it's no surprise the brand has more than 120.9 million cardholders as of November 20, 2022. Plastic wrap may not be the first item you think of when making your grocery list, but according to some, it should be. The private Facebook group "Costco meal ideas for busy moms" posted about the 3,000-foot plastic wrap and received overwhelming positive responses about its quality and longevity.

Within the first 24 hours, the post received more than 1,200 likes and 83 comments (via the Kitchn). One person stated, "Happy 10th birthday to this baby! You were with us when we were just two new homeowners and still with us now as a family of 4." Ten years is a surprisingly long time for plastic wrap. However, others reported theirs have lasted just as long, if not longer — some anywhere from 15-20 years. One person went as far as to say they inherited their Costco plastic wrap from their grandfather (talk about a family heirloom).

Based on the Facebook comments, the shortest length of time a person had their saran wrap was five years. Still, that's quite a steal considering the price — about $4 per year. Ultimately, you may be left with an industrial-sized roll of plastic wrap, but you'll save money in the long run — and have enough to last a few trips around the sun.
