We sold our 3 bedroom home and moved into what is known as a 2 bedroom apartment home. We sold all our appliances with the house because we just didn't want to move them. I spent over $200.00 at the complex laundromat over 11 months. I was getting tired of the washers and dryers breaking down. And I only did my wash once a week.
All the apartments have a space for a washer and dryer. We had to buy an electric dryer because they don't provide the gas connection. And we can't make any modifications to the apartment according to our lease agreement. We purchased a used 3 year old matching Kenmore washer and dryer for $375.00 + $40.00 delivery charge. The used appliance store gave us a 90 day warranty. You sure can't beat the price of $415.00. Now is that being frugal or what?

You can save a lot of money by purchasing second hand appliances from used appliance stores. My DH and I purchased a stove, refrigerator, washer, and dryer at a fraction of the price of what they would cost brand new.
