I just moved into a duplex that has washer and dryer hook ups. I'd really like to get my own washer and dryer so I can 1. stop mooching off my parents when I go visit them and 2. not have to use laundry mats that charge an arm and a leg. The issue I"m having now is whether to invest in a nice washer/dryer such as the HE types or find a set off Craigslist. I got a sign on bonus at work so I could afford to buy a new set but I just dont know if the cost is worth buying brand new and being more green or buying used and potentially getting a washer/dryer that is less enviromentally friendly. Any suggestions?
