View Full Version : Expenses - How much are you spending this year?

For bare cost I've finally got my total:

$200 for plane
$300 for hotel and rental car
$50 for con
$50 for food

The tax on the plane tickets made it exactly $200. The people renting the car and who's name the hotel room is under have finalized their price. The entry fee is standard, and I'm being pretty generous on the food. I doubt I'll remember food exists once I get there... as usual.

I shudder to think of the dealer's room cost. Money just slips away in that place!

Who can beat me here?

Room = $244.00 (splitting the room with a friend)
Pre-reg = $35.00 (thanks Alaria-san)
Food = $20.00 (I bring my own granola barks and small cans of fruit drinks)
Train $20.00 (one way... dad taking me back... I hope)
Spending = $45.00 + credit card with $4,000 limit

I just know I have a $300 budget for this con. ^_^;; I live in the area, but I'll be staying at the hotel. Commuting for the past few years was tiring. I can't wait!
