Tips For Roommates: Sharing A Bathroom The Easy Way



In this day and age more and more people are choosing to live in a shared space. Having a roommate or two can help you save money, or just make it possible for you to live on a smaller budget. Along with the upsides to sharing an apartment, there are also some downsides too, and sharing a bathroom is one of them. Below we discuss three things to have in place that will help make sharing a bathroom so much easier.

  1. Divide The Storage Space Together - Organize your bathroom storage space together from the very start. This way no one will have questions as to where their toiletries go and whose stuff they are using. This is also a way to cut back on clutter, like the old saying goes, “a place for everything and everything in it’s place.”
  2. Put A Cleaning Schedule In Place  - Bathrooms get dirty, and if you don’t have a schedule in place, something that is everyone’s job becomes no one's job. Set your schedule up on the inside of the bathroom cupboard, or in a place that is easily accessible. You could share the bathroom cleaning each week with individual jobs, or you could switch off weeks cleaning the entire bathroom.
  3. Use An App To Split Bathroom Expenses - No one likes to run out of toilet paper or hand soap. A way to prevent this is to split your bathroom expenses using Splitwise, an app designed to help roommates split expenses for almost anything. And then purchase your bathroom supplies at the beginning of each month.
