The Hunger Games hits theaters on March 23!

My obsession with The Hunger Games book series, along with the highly anticipated movie adaptation has me wondering, "If I was chosen for the Hunger Games, how would I survive?" I am not an archery prodigy, and my weak upper body strength could never match Peeta's strong, brawny baker arms. Swoon.

Lucky for me, The Reaping, tracker jackers, and that evil President Snow are worries that I need not dwell on. In fact, I should be far more concerned over Gale fangirls pulling my hair in a brawl for the very last ticket. Which is why we have searched all of Panem, I mean the Internet, for the best deals on everything you need to survive The Hunger Games movie premiere. May the odds be ever in your favor.
