With our roomy and open floor plans, The Fillmore Center is a favorite for roommates. To keep things going nice and smooth after your move, we’d like to share these great tips for living with a roommate from Moveline. Here are our top five faves:
1. Agree on some ground rules.
It pays in the long run to have a conversation about your living habits.
2. Split expenses the tech savvy way.
Keep things 50/50 with apps like Splitwise or Venmo, which connect to your bank account, so you can send milk money to your roomie at the click of a button.
3. Get to know each other’s schedules.
This is especially important if you’re sharing a bathroom. Trust us.
4. Don’t be a note-leaver.
Nobody likes them and they never solve the problem. Roommate notes should be happy, like “I baked cookies! Take one!”
5. Consider a chore chart.
Yes, maybe a little Type A, but can save you a lot of heart ache. Here’s a great article from Apartment Therapy loaded with tips for splitting chores with roommates.
