Ours are left in the garage of our condo too. Cleaners and guards have families that will use them. Toys go to the local orphanage. Life is too short to go grubbing around for 30 baht or so.
same same bottles, cans, lots of paper e.g. old phone books - leave 'em beside bins in bags, in 5 mins. they'll be gone
mate of mine chucks cans/bottles in a corner and forgets 'em - now and again he wangs 'em in a few bags and sends his kid off somewhere with 'em - came back with 400 baht and a big grin last time

When I was a kid I had loads of hand-me-downs. My grandpa (dad's father) used to work for the NSPCC. He used to pick up all sorts of good things and my brother and I always had reasonable clothes, except of course when we went to the grubby areas to play!
I've got some things I don't want any more. I'm going to ask my g/f whether she could drop them off at the local wat because the monks will know what to do with them and how to donate them to the needy families. My mum always used to say, "Waste not, want not". Very true it is too.
I like this thread. There are some good peole around. It's nice to see this.

Arthur Dent watches as the clouds scud away in the lorry's wake. The rain ceases, allowing Arthur to dry off.
All Rob McKenna knows is that he can't remember his last sunny holiday. All the clouds know is that they love him, they want to be near him, to cherish him, to nurture him and to WATER him. For Rob McKenna is, in fact, a Rain God.
Got any nice beige cardies? Elasticated waistband trousers?
And TC, how the hell can they carry on working in red, sparkly heels?!
I'm everywhere you've never been and better than I've ever been
I was lucky and found a charity shop in Phuket through Thai Visa. I was just wondering if any existed, and I looked on Thai visa and there it was. Karma. It's called Thaitanics and I donated 5 bags of clothes, a toaster oven and a food steamer. They come to your house to pick up.
I give them to the motorsai guys. They sell / auction/ give them on..
Dearest NB: my nosebleed heels are sacred and never leave the vault...except, of course, for my annual Christmas cocktail where they are used as champagne boats. However, the gardener looks fetching (and sweating) in my beaded top and matching disco headband, gayly clipping his shrubs.
...majestically enthroned amid the vulgar herd...
Ha! The headband...
I read this thread and noticed a Thaitanics (charity shop in Phuket) reference. I've just got involved in working with them - they do lots of good work in the local community including helping underprivaliged and mistreated women and children. Donations to the charity shop are more than welcome - we are on Saiyuan Road close to Nai Harn beach.

So, if we scrape some layers off, we'd find the original Victorian wallpaper?

Riddle me this brother can you handle it
Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
Smokin' and drinkin' on a Tuesday night
It's not how you play the game it's how you win it
I cheat and steal and sin and I'm a cynic
I'm not sure what it was but I took off a few layers of skin once when I fell off a motorcy and it was all floral under there...Originally Posted by Nickyboy
