Common Reasons to Have a Roommate
There are many good reasons to have a roommate. See if any of these reasons appeal to you:
- You’ll gain convenience.
Having a roommate adds convenience. For instance, if you have different schedules, a roommate can feed your pet or water the plants when you’re not at home to do it. If you go out of town, your roommate can tell you about any important mail you receive.
- You’ll save money.
When you have a roommate, you’ll save money in several ways. First, you can rent a larger apartment that would give you both more room and more value. You’ll also split utility bills and the cost of groceries, among other apartment expenses. Plus, if you or your roommate cooke (even if you just do the basics), cooking for two (or three or more) normally saves money over cooking for just one.
- You’ll have help.
With a roommate, you can split the chores needed to keep your apartment in shape. So, you won’t have to be the one to do grocery shopping all the time. Or, if you become the designated grocery shopper, your roommate can take on other errands that you would normally have to do. Sharing errands helps lighten the load for both of you.
- And lastly, you won’t be lonely.
Even if you’re not close with your roommate, having a roommate means having someone else around, so you won’t have to feel lonely.
