A Series of Posts to Help You Get Ready for Your (Possibly) First Convention [part 2: Budget]

Hey guys! I hope you all enjoyed the con-season post from yesterday (if you’ve read it already, we’re moving pretty quickly here) where I talked about useful items to pack. But as I was typing it up, I realized that post was useful only if you already knew what convention you were going to attend.
