My senior year of college I lived with 5 other dudes in an 8 bedroom house. Here's what I've learned
1.) Have your own mini fridge in your own room w/ your own drinks/food. (Trust me)
2.) Cook at home as much as you can. Eating out a meal these days is like $20 a meal. $20 can be basic groceries for a weeks worth.
3.) If you have to pay for utilities, always turn off lights when they aren't being used.
4.) Designate a dish day for each of the members of the household or dirty dishes are going to PILE UP.
5.) If someone misses their dish day, the person after them has to give them a warning or they have to pay a fine of $5 to the HOUSEHOLD FUNDS JAR. (This shit was dope cuz the money covered like beer pong cups, beer, and sometimes even bottles of liquor).
6.) Designate cleaning areas that each person has to clean once a week, living with a bunch of dudes gets the house dirty QUICK.
7.) Invest in a dope TV, we got a 54" (I think) and when chicks came over they drooled
8.) If you guys drink alot of beer, invest in a kegerator, dudes came over they drooled.
9.) Live it up, partying at home is cheaper than partying out, I threw like 3 parties a week and had the time of my life.
