Costco offers the Kirkland Brand and it can save you a lot of money. Many of the Kirkland products are private label from big brands. I have linked several similar or exact private label with brands so you can take a look on your own. Costco has confirmed some of these; some are speculated, and some are close. Hope this helps save you some cash!

Kirkland has a high wool content – the weave is thick and I wear these socks (even though they are aimed toward men- size down for women) medium thickness and comfy! 72% Merino Wool, 27% Nylon, and 1% Spandex
Kirkland v. Roxbury Mountain
This Kirkland maple syrup is rich, real, and amazing quality. It is a higher priced grocery item – however no artificial flavors and not the high fructose corn syrup. Still much cheaper to buy Kirkland – about 30 an ounce cheaper. It comes in a plastic jug -gluten free – slight hint of molasses and it is large enough to last a year. Around $13.99
Kirkland Signature Shampoo v. Pureology
Kirkland’s shampoo and conditioner are absolutely amazing. It smells like Pureology and instead of $44 dollars it is much less to the tune of $12 – it is replenishes and moisturizes hair. Sulfate/ free and keeps my hair healthier, softer, and shiny.
