The average family of four spends about $20 each week at the laundromat.
I like to change my sheets every 3 days, so we spend about $25 each week at the laundromat.
My family and I don’t have a washer and dryer in our home, because we live in an RV. We don’t have any space for a large washing and drying machine and we really have too many people in our home for a small one. Our only choice is going to the laundromat once a week. I wash all of the clothes, towels, linens, and blankets. Once a month, I wash all of the pets bedding and blankets. It can be very expensive and I never know what facilities I will have from week to week. Last month, my family and I stayed in a really nice RV resort with a full service laundry room. They had televisions, snack machines, a ceiling fan, 8 washers and 8 dryers. They only charged $1.00 for each, which is really, really cheap. The place also had a really nice space heater in the middle, where the folding area was located. The space heater made the whole room much cozier. It was pretty cold outside. I think the average daily temperatures were only around 50 degrees. I didn’t mind sitting in the building to fold my clothes, since it was warmer in that room than inside my RV. My wife and I refuse to use the propane heat at night. It’s way too expensive and we have wool blankets. We also have our own tiny space heater, but it isn’t nearly as nice as the one in that laundry room.
