There will always be a great feeling in sharing with our roommates, agree? Moreover, there is also fun when you share something. But since we heard a lot of rumours or stories about having a messy, inconsiderate, and weird roommate, we tend to be hesitant about having and sharing some things with them. It doesn’t matter if you are sharing a room in a townhouse in Quezon City Philippines, you definitely don’t want to share a thing when you have such roommate. Right?
However, if you are one of those people who have shared a room with his/her friends, then there are actually a lot of things or essentials at home that you can share with them. And if you are wondering what things that you can share with them, then you might as well refer to these things below.
Food and beverage
Whether you realize it or not, it is more fun eating when you have someone to eat with you. Agree? How much more if you tend to share your food with your roommates? Your roommates do not just save money for the food, they will also feel that you care enough for them since you are thoughtful enough of giving them food. Of course, that does not also mean that they don’t have enough money to buy their own food. But there will also be a great feeling when it comes to sharing foods with your roommates.
Gas, not the car
It is actually common for most officemates to share a room. So, when it comes to going to and from to work, it is just normal for the both of you to go together, right? Well, that unless there are urgent matters where you can’t go together. However, if one has a car, you can talk about sharing the gas, but not the car, of course. Remember, the gas is still one of your expenses. That is why you also have to decide on how are you going to divide the expenses for the gas.
Appliances and furniture
You definitely don’t want to have a home full of furniture where there are no spaces available left, right? That is why, whatever appliances or furniture you have at home, it is just a norm for you to share it with your roommates. If you have a comfortable couch in the living room, might as well share it with your roommate. With that, you will not have too many appliances and furniture at home.
Kitchen appliances and dinnerware
Just like sharing the appliances and furniture at home, kitchen appliances and dinnerware are also one of the many things you can share with your roommates. Of course, you definitely don’t want to have a lot of microwaves or a coffee maker just for the both of you. Right? Moreover, you are not just wasting your money buying another one, you are also making the space of your home smaller since you have a lot of things for you to put. And I’m sure you don’t want that, right?
Entertainment and media systems
If you don’t want to spend too much on your electricity bills, then you better share with your roommate some entertainment and media systems. Of course, you have to make sure that you have to know who gets to control the remote, or who gets to decide what to watch. With that, both of you will have an agreement on what you should do when it comes to watching or doing some entertainment stuff.
If you are planning to subscribe to a Netflix, then you might as well share it with your roommate. Of course, who don’t want to share when you got to watch movies as long as you want, and as many as you want, right? That is why you also have to make sure to talk about it if you want to subscribe something for you not to use something only for your own.
