Gran no longer needs to save her dollar coins for “laundry”

For the past twenty years grandmother Judice Freespins has been known to save every dollar coin she comes across for her seemingly never ending laundry pile. However, Judice has now informed her friends and family that she no longer needs their help in collecting coins, as her local laundromat machines will soon accept notes.

‘This is a relief to us’, said her daughter Maura ‘she’s always telling me and the kids “make sure you save them dollar coins, I need to go do laundry this week”, which we’ve always thought is strange, because she has a brand new washer-dryer combo at home’.

When Judice was pressed as to why she chooses to wash her clothes at a laundromat instead, she stated ‘well, it’s the social aspect really. Gets me out of the house, meeting new people, and the excitement of watching all those machines spin at once’.

Concerned with the amount of time Judice, like many other retirees, is spending at the laundromat, Adelaide Mail asked how much she has actually spent washing.

‘Well, I like to clean my clothes as often as possible, there are some losses. Somewhere around the mark of twelve thousand odd socks this year. But there are also wins, sometimes I’ll find an extra sock or two, a pair of undies every now and then, once I hit the jackpot and got a new Crows jumper. I think it’s because I rubbed on the machine for good luck beforehand’.
