After seeing such wildly different options and prices for 13 gallon kitchen trash bags at Target yesterday, my head spun. So I did some research and made a table of the best options out there: Glad ForceFlex, Kirkland (Costco), Member’s Mark (Sam’s Club), Hefty, Husky.
I’m not sure if Glad (which is what I have been using) pays people to write reviews, etc., but others such as Member’s Mark and Kirkland seem to be a better bang for the buck over the other brands (all that seems to really matter is the um — which is written on every box — when determining the quality/thickness of a bag). It seems the better bags are generally rated over 22 um. Hope this helps some people save some money and frustrations.
