An Ode to the Abandoned Trolleys

It seems that now a major part of our fund is found through trolleys be it the nice shiny dollar coins or the 20 cent deceptions they really do form a big part, so this post is an appreciation of abandoned trolleys all over the island.

We spotted one abandoned at Center Point shopping mall not 100m away from the trolley collection bay so that was a real bonus.

Unexpected places

Went looking around the Salvation Army Thrift Stores for no apparent reason then window shop and she managed to spot a coin each under the 2 vending machines that were there, the first one was a 10 cent coin and the second a 5 cent coin. She really has gotten the lark's eye at spotting coins.

Updates, updates and more updates

Went to Thailand last weekend for my good friend's wedding, on the way to the airport I found a 1 cent coin under the train seat then at the departure lounge I happened to find a dollar coin and a $0.20 coin.

While over at Bangkok, she found 1 Thai Baht under a vending machine.
I spotted a few coins while over there too but it was in a place where there were beggars around, so I decided that I wasn't going to pick up any coins if there were people who needed it more than I did, like beggars...

After coming back while shopping for groceries, she saw a trolley at the carpark and there was a dollar in it!

Then last night after having dinner and doing a bit of groceries, she spotted a trolley in the carpark but was disappointed when after bringing it back all was in the coin slot was $0.20! She was kinda miffed but it wasn't the first time....
