Laundromat vs. washer & dryer included in rent

May 30th, 2011 at 11:58 am

I am looking for a new apartment. Most inexpensive apartments don't have a washer and dryer. The ones that do, are higher. Doesn't it all even out at the end of the day? I read online about how owning your own set can cost (these are guesstimates) 10 cents to 50 cents per load. I spend between 30 and 60 each month. Some places will rent a stackable to you for 30 a month. Any thoughts on how to get the best deal? I have my son and me, I wear my clothes more than once but his usually need washed after one wear.
