Day 19: ’70′s Bunco Style

I seriously cannot imagine missing a month of Bunco, but knew that I would have to sit out this month with the No Spend Challenge.

My girlfriends would not hear of it though and said that they would let me keep my money if I came to play with everyone. My concern was that everyone would feel like I was the charity case, but no one wanted me to sit out. They had all sorts of reasons to justify the spending (“Isn’t Bunco as important as paying the mortgage and phone bills?”). With everyone’s sweet insistence, I decided to throw in my $5 to play and hoped that I would win it back so no one would have to pony up my money for the games.

The disco ball for our Bunco night was something that had been gathering dust in my basement for the past five years. I brought it to a White Elephant Gift Swap for my mom’s group and soon realized that my White Elephant in my house was one of the more sought after prizes. My friend Jessica won it and put it to work for a ’70′s Bunco night.

The delicious fondue pot and dippers.



The hot ’70′s attire. Mine came courtesy of my closet, others found their great finds at Goodwill!

The utter relief that I won my money back fair and square so no one had to pay for my Bunco money. Phew!

My amazing Bunco Babes who wouldn’t think of letting me not join them for a fun night out!


Thanks to my Bunco Babes, I was still able to enjoy a fun No Spend night out with the girls!
