Purchased Meals are Disappearing

Modified on Mon, 11 Mar at 12:59 PM

In our Personal Finance simulation, your food will disappear immediately if you run the simulation forward with an unpaid utility bill. If your utility bill remains unpaid, it will go into collections and they will cut off your electricity. This will cause the food in your refrigerator to spoil and be discarded.

To solve this problem, you will need to pay your utility bill immediately. If you do not have a bill available on your desk, you will need to purchase food daily while you wait for your bill to arrive.

Note:  If the utility bill is paid via Check or Credit Card, there will be a delay in your power being restored while the payment is processed and you will need to continue purchasing food daily.  If the utility bill is paid with your Debit Card, power will be restored immediately.
