A.Balaban Posted February 17, 2012 Share Posted February 17, 2012 I'm trying to save some cash.. We live in a small apartment and have no washer or dryer. We typically use the smaller top-loaders at the laundromat. It costs $2.25 per load. We typically do three loads a week. ($6.75) Then, we dry the clothes (cost $0.25 per 7 minutes). Depending on the day, it may take 4-6 rounds to get the clothes dry. ($1-1.50 per load, or $3-$4.50). Occasionally, we have to use the larger HE washing machines that cost between $4.50-$6.50 per load. :glare: Our "laundry budget" is about $40 a month. Don't think that it actually gets ALL of our laundry done though, we usually have laundry that takes 1-2 weeks to get done at a time. And about once a month, we do a huge load of blankets, sheets and towels. (no, we change them more frequently, but they just pile up at home for a month) We also have to rotate how often other things get done (like whites). I just keep thinking we are throwing money away washing our stupid clothes and it drives me bonkers. I would much rather save the money to put towards a new washer and dryer when we move into a new apartment. I already do the stain-removing and pre-washing at home, but the reason I haven't considered washing my clothes at home is because I wondered if I would be able to get them "really" clean or if they would just be a mess? Does anyone do this? :lurk5: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
