20 Easy Tricks To Make Living With Roommates So Much Better

No matter how much you love them (or not), sharing space with other living humans can be tough. Well, NOT ANYMORE.

1. Drawer + cutting board = instant counter space in a crowded kitchen.

Don't use this as a surface for cutting since it could potentially tip over and wound you, but it's a good way to keep all your ingredients neat until it's actually time to use them.

4. To subtly signal that one of you is getting some, put clear tape over the door's keyhole.

It's an excellent alternative to a sock or a scrunchie. (Although not, it should be said, better than simply texting and letting your roommate know they're about to come home to a bangin' fandango.)

5. Invest in a sex fan.

It's just like a regular fan, except that you turn it on to block out the noise of moans and creaking. It's even better etiquette if you are the sex-haver in question and turn it on yourself so your roommates don't have to.

7. Chore charts can make the world go 'round.

It totally varies from apartment to apartment and group to group, but having a rotating schedule can help minimize squabbling, resentment, and grout mold.

12. Brush long hair before going in the shower to avoid clogged drains.

And, more significantly, to avoid (or at least lessen) arguments over whose hair wad is the plumbing culprit.
