Don't want the neighborhood to know you're stocking up for the apocalypse?

Costco notes that the food is "packaged discreetly for privacy in shipping."

But the packages are huge, weighing about 1,800 pounds, according to one customer who reviewed the product on Costco's website.

Putting it that way, it sounds pretty good.  I hate grocery shopping!  Not shopping for years, sounds like a great idea.  Silly7

Last time SO went WITH a list and charged cell phone he brought a 40 pound bag of basmati because it was on sale. We are set for domesday. Did anyone mention furries? We are good for about 30 days. Considering the crazy weather here I turned into somewhat of a pantry rat but four years of cans - I pass. Someone has bee reading Heinlein:)
