I need YOUR help and advice!
See while I was at uni I lived on campus in share accommodation. It was old and dirty and with all the partying that took place, keeping it clean was nobody’s top priority. Everyone was on the same page about it so it was fine.
Now, for the first time in my life I find myself living in a share house. The house is nice, it’s fairly new with lots of white features and white tiles. I share with 3 other girls all in their 20’s and 2 cats.
The issue here is one of cleaning and how to manage equal division of household chores. At the moment it seems to me that only 2 of us do anything. I’ve lived here for just over 2 months now and we are the only 2 to empty the bin, put the bins out, clean the bathroom or toilet, and there are always dishes in the sink (a total pet peeve).
So, I’m looking to others who have lived in share houses to hear how you broached the subject of cleaning? Did you have rosters? How did you deal with an unhelpful housemate? Any advice at all, please!?
