Get a cardboard box and weigh the dirt (subtracting the empty box) on your bathroom scales that will go into a cubic foot (12"x12"x12") and then multiply it by 27 to get pounds per cubic yard.

You can also call a dirt contractor cause they know how much their trucks weigh and hold. You mentioned dry but after a rain, the wet dirt will be much heavier. Good luck.
