Challenge 045:
SPARED NO EXPENSE

(phrase) to spend as much money as necessary to make something good, without worrying about the cost; To expend time, money, or other measures of value to do something the best or most extravagant way possible.

It's a phrase that we hear a lot but don't always think about the meaning of, that someone has 'spared no expense' in preparing something. But what kind of expense do they necessarily mean? Monetary is the easiest assumption, but it could also have been sacrifices of other kinds: time, family, pride, or relationships. Sometimes these efforts pay dividends... sometimes they're looked back on as not worth the cost.

Write a story about someone who has 'spared no expense' in setting something up, and how that thing is received by themselves and/or others.

BONUS GOAL: Jackpot

If your submission contains reference to someone winning a jackpot (does not have to be money), that entry will earn an extra point to be tallied during voting!

Challenge ends Monday, October 9th at 9:00PM EST
• Post your submission as a new entry using the template in the profile
• Tag this week's entries as: [#] submission, 045 - spared no expense
