Day 1: Leisure Park, Gazebo Roof
- Grab the real mega-buster in the security room
- Go out to the rooftop through the vent/duct and kill Otis - he drops a raw steak
- Grab the two cabbages on the rooftop
- Take the door to the Warehouse - don't take the elevator
- Pick up the squash in the Warehouse and knee-drop down to get Susan's cookies - spoiler alert: she's been murdered by zombies
- Go back to the Security Room via the elevator and vent/duct and take the door to the Entrance Plaza
- Go to Sinister Read on the second floor and pick-up the Health Book there
- Avoid Paul if you happen to see him in the Entrance Plaza and go back to the Security Room
- Go to Paradise Plaza via the Warehouse
- Head to Jill's Sandwiches (by Colby's) and cook Otis' raw steak in the microwave
- Take the bathroom shortcut from Paradise Plaza to Wonderland Plaza
- Grab the second Health Book from Sir-Book-A-Lot on the second floor
- Take the passage on the first floor from Wonderland Plaza to the North Plaza
- Go to the storage room/empty room to the left of Crislip's for the 3rd, and final, book you'll need
- Eat something but make sure you don't waste any energy potential - use for reference
- Go into Crislip's and grab the Japanese Radish and Orange which are both behind the counter
- Go out into Leisure Park and kill the 3 snipers - the are carrying lots of food
- Use zombies to jump on top of the Gazebo; jump on their back then jump on top of the Gazebo ... this is a safe spot and you'll need to repeat this a few times
- You're going to camp on top of the Gazebo until 9pm on Day 1
- Use one of the sniper rifles dropped by the snipers to look at the clock tower to tell the time
- Gather the food around Leisure Park as needed and keep coming back to the Gazebo roof; I skipped the apples in the trees that you have to hit with rocks because they're a pain in the ass to get
- at 9:00pm, head to the Food Court and kill Carlito on the rafters above the Food Court - jump up to the rafters using the crates by the no-smoking sign in the seating area
- Collect the food around the Food Court and hang out on the rafters; this is your camping spot

Day 2 - Food Court, Rafters
- Camp out on the rafters above the Food Court and eat food as needed until 2pm - I couldn't find a clock in the Food Court, so I used for reference
- Optional but fun: At 2pm on Day 2 I decided to go to Leisure Park quickly then go right back into the Food Court to refresh the area ... I found Rich when I did that and killed him for his milk - he was up on the rafters with a submachine gun
- At 4pm leave for Al Fresca Plaza; inventory check: at this point I was sitting on 3 golden brown pizzas and 4 bottles of wine
- Kill Isabella in Al Fresca Plaza ... she drops cookies, milk, and an energizer
- Set up camp behind the counter at McHandy's Hardware
- Collect all the food around Al Fresca Plaza and bring it back to your camping spot - you can use Isabella's motorcycle for this if you want
- 8pm Day 2 inventory check: 3 golden brown pizzas, 4 bottles of wine, 3 cartons of milk, 3 orange juice jugs, 3 pies, and 1 energizer
- WARNING: zombies can jump the counter at McHandy's so pay attention ... it's still a good camping spot - just not 100% secure; if you wanna be super safe jump up on one of the shelves

Day 3 - Al Fresca Plaza, McHandy's
- Spend all day at McHandy's - use clock in Flexin' to synchronize time as needed

Day 4 - Entrance Plaza, Robsaka Digital
- 9am on Day 4: leave for Entrance Plaza
- Ignore Sniper Carlito for the moment and use the door near Robsaka Digital to go back to the Security Room for a fresh real mega buster; your ammo may be getting a bit low by now
- Head back to the Entrance Plaza and kill Sniper Carlito - easy to do from a distance with the real mega buster ... he drops a well-done steak, corn, and a snack
- Set up a camping spot behind the counter in Robsaka Digital; note the clock behind the counter on the wall
- Gather all of the food in the Entrance Plaza
- WARNING: zombies can jump the counter at Robsaka Digital so pay attention ... it's still a good camping spot - just not 100% secure; an alternative is standing on top of a bookshelf in The Sinister Read which is nearby. You can use the big clock on the bee statue to tell the time when you need to
- WARNING: Do not enter or leave Food Court from 4:05:00 to 4:23:59 or the game will freeze on loading screen. This is a known bug ... just stay away from the Food Court on Day 4 to be safe.

Day 5 - Paradise Plaza, Blue Awnings
- I got bored around 2am on Day 5 ... so I went to get another real mega buster and killed Todd on the Helipad for his thawed vegetables. He came at me with a paint bucket, not too threatening all things considered
- Next I went back to the Entrance Plaza and found Simone who attacked me with a bowling ball. She dropped a carton of milk
- 9am on Day 5: leave for Security Room and kill Chris for his melon
- Head to the Warehouse and kill Natalie for her corn
- Go to Paradise Plaza and head to Colby's Movieland to kill Heather for her baguette
- Go back out to Paradise Plaza and jump up to the blue awnings by using the stairs
- Gather all of the food in Paradise Plaza and bring it back to your camping spot
- Inventory check: at this point I had: 1 baguette, 2 pies, 4 OJs, 2 wines, 1 well done steak, and 3 golden brown pizzas ... about 49 hours worth of food
- Spend the night here; you'll unlock 5-day survivor and the laser sword will spawn in the Security Room

Day 6 - Theater #2, Colby's Movieland
- At 5am go and kill Kent in the Warehouse for a pie, coffee creamer, and a well-done steak
- Hang out here for a bit and eat food as needed (
- Go up to the Rooftop and kill Nathan for a pie
- Go through the Security Room to the Helipad and kill Burt for a coffee creamer, watch out - he comes at you with a battle axe. I hopped up on the roof of where the entrance to the Security Room is (using the barrels) and shot him with the real mega buster
- Make your way to Colby's Movieland and set up a camp in Theater #2
- Collect the food in Colby's and bring it back to your theater
- Inventory check: at this point I had 4 coffee creamers, 2 bottles of wine, 2 well-done steaks, 3 golden brown pizzas, and a cabbage ... something like 47 hours worth of food

Day 7 - Theater #2, Colby's Movieland
- Eat as needed, you should have plenty of food to last through 7 days in the safety of Theater #2 with the door closed

* NOTE: Be sure to let yourself die after you get the achievement then save your game when prompted (i.e. DON'T just turn off your console), it's the only way to save and ensure that Arthur's Boxers and the Laser Sword are available in future games/modes!
** I chose to starve to death on top of the fountain in Paradise Plaza with the rest of my hoarded food:
