Kirkland Signature Stretch-Tite Plastic Food Wrap

Winter is a good time to make big batches of hearty meals, like stew, soups, pot roasts and casseroles. But when you have leftovers, you need to cover them up for freshness. Take advantage of Kirkland’s Stretch-Tite plastic food wrap. According to SheKnows, “this stuff is way better than any other brand of plastic wrap we’ve tried.” It’s just $24.99 for a whopping 3,000 feet of the stuff — you probably won’t run out until 2025!

Kirkland Signature Organic Broccoli Florets, 4 Pounds

Maybe you made a New Year’s resolution to eat more veggies or get your kids to do so. Maybe you are already a vegetable lover who doesn’t want to have to brave the weather to get out and shop frequently. Whatever your approach, Kirkland makes eating healthy easy, by selling a 4-pound bag of broccoli florets. According to Kitchn, the florets come in four 1-pound bags, which helps you avoid freezer burn because you only have to open one bag at a time. Though the price may vary from location to location, according to Kitchn, they should run you around $7.99.

Winter is the season for keeping your tootsies extra toasty, and Kirkland can help with that. Its extra-fine merino wool blend socks come in a pack of four pairs, and offer such features as breathable mesh and a smooth finish toe seam, so you don’t have any irritants in your shoes.

Kirkland Signature Filtered Water Pitcher

With bad winter storms often come interruptions to things like water and power. Flooding can back up drains and make it unsafe to drink the water from your house. Ice and snow can freeze pipes.

For less than $30 ($29.99), you get the pitcher and two filter cartridges. The BPA-free pitcher makes 10 cups of filtered water and its electronic reminder will let you know when it’s time to put in a new cartridge.
