I just bought 8 cases of Macaroni and Cheese at Albertsons for $6 a case! That's almost 200 meals for $48!!!!!!!

Albertsons's is not just in the West. We have it here in Florida and I am off to see if they have the sale on here too. Thanks for info.

Throughout far northern calif. and southern oregon, there are local chains (Rays Food lace, Price For Less) that sell "Western Family" brands. Right now, they are having a huge sale on about 100 different types of cases of canned goods and "boxes" like macaroni and muffins.
About people prepping...I find it interesting that when I checked on my order, the gal told me it might be awhile. They had so many people order this year that they were bringing in 1-2 trucks a day extra with the stuff. (This is in a city less than 10,000 which is our county seat. Looks like people here quietly are stocking up.)

Freddie: I hope you have powdered milk and butter for that mac and cheese.
