Wouldn't it be easier to just pay for the room completely upfront? It makes more sense to me. then again I come from an economic philosophy of But what you are buying, for the entire price upfront, in cash. Rather than taking out a loan and all that other crap and spending years paying on said item, and most of all I hate owing people money.
You do pay for the room completely upfront. One person will obviously be putting the room charge on his/her card, and they do charge the full weekend's amount when you check in. The divided numbers is just each person's individual SHARE of the room, that they can pay to the cardholder in cash for their spot in the room.
That's what I meant, so...sorry if it was confusing.
If we paid in advance (months before the con) do we need to pay a deposit when we get there? My friend paid for our hotel and she did it already with her credit card...so do we need to bring a deposit?
My friends and I were able to spend a total of 0 dollars on food! Well, at the con. We brought food from costco that we kept in a cooler or on the table. Nothing needs to be cooked! We brought;
Beef jerky-like 20 packs
Noodles-a whole case both cup and bagged ramen, either dry or with hot water from coffee pot.
dry cereal-lucky charms FTW!
Snack bars-2-3 cases!
Gummy snacks-for candy cravings, not much
Panda Snacks/Pocky-candy cravings, lots!
Fruit-apples, pears, bananas, cherries and lemons are what we had!
Candy bars- candy cravings are strong at fanime for some reason...
fruit roll-ups-not a lot, but they taste good...
individually wrapped pastries-debbie bars, ding-dongs, ho-ho's, twinkies,
Lunchables-not all need refrigeration, please check labels and don't sue me if you pick the wrong kind!!
Breads/baked goods-most can be eaten room-temp!
Muffins/Bagels-yum....breakfast all week!
Chips-cheap, filling, 5 bags kept up happy for 5 days!
Corn nuts/nuts in general-protein so you don't pass-out/get sick like Terra did last year.
Bread with pb+j or some other room-temp safe spread.
That's what I survived on the weekend!
PLEASE READ THIS THOUGH; DON'T BUY FAST FOOD! THEY STOP PREPARING IT SAFELY AT BK AND MC D'S BY 8PM! THEY RUN OUT OF KETCHUP/PICKLES/LETTUCE/EVERYTHING BY SATURDAY!! I GOT REAAAALLY SICK ONE YEAR WHEN I BOUGHT A BURGER!!
Also, water is free all convention long, why are people buying water?
