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
--------
$600

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?

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!

Lets see..

AX Registration: $40
Hotel Reservation: $70
Costumes: roughy~$100
Total SO FAR: $210.
Not that much.
But I have to go food shopping before (college student on a budget can't go out to eat! RAMEN ) AX, and then who knows what ebil thing will scream "BUY ME!" at Dealer's Hall.. :-/
I'm trying to stay under $400 as much as I can. That will be good.

Plane: $200 (x6 for everyone going with us)
3 hotel rooms at what was it? $130-ish a night? for 4 nights
Pre-reg x 3 = $150
Plus a mini-van rented...
I have a $200 limit on what I can spend in the dealer's room >< I spent too much at Akon.
