The Quest for Quarters

|Bag of Quarters for the coin-op laundry|
I find myself putting a $5 bill into vending machines and pressing the coin return without buying anything to get $5 in quarters. I've become a quarter hoarder!
I've started to measure the cost of doing laundry measured in quarters. The washing machines cost 5 quarters per load.

The dryer costs 4 quarters for 1 hour of drying time. A total of 9 quarters to wash and dry a load. I look at my plastic baggie of quarters - do I have enough?

The lesson here is don't turn into a quarter hoarder! If you think you may ever want to go on extended trips or live in your RV full time, I would look for a model with a washer and dryer. Since I don't have that option, I am considering purchasing a small portable dryer, does anyone have any experience with the one pictured below?
Any other compact washer or dryer recommendations?
