Eating Items From the Minibar

Do You Drink or Eat Items From the Minibar?

It seems that Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss in The Hunger Games, defines adulthood and fame as being able to indulge in items from the minibar. Lawrence tells Glamour:

"Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I'm all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.”

I personally don't think it's worth it to pay inflated prices for snacks and drinks. If I give into my cravings and take items from the minibar, I would go replace them with items from a nearby drugstore or supermarket. Little costs here and there can add up, and before you know it, the hotel "deal" you spent such a long time researching ends up costing a little more than it should. What about you — do you drink or eat items from the minibar?

the mini bars have a sensor on them now.  you pick up the item; you are charged.  occasionally i'll take something out of the mini bar, but not too often.
