Over the last 2 years we've had both of the laundromats on our street burn down. Soooo, I invested in a sturdy granny cart to lug my delicates the nearly 10 blocks to the next closest location.
It turnout out to be much cheaper as it was on a quiet, out of the way street and I usually had it all to myself. Plus I could sit outside on a wee little bench and listen to the birds gossip. :)
Then this one opened only 4 doors down... It's strangely high tech (high tech = expensive apparently!) and play pop hip hop music (which stresses me out when I usually find doing laundry so relaxing). But it's so close!
