Splitting Bills With Roommates: Have you ever had trouble getting your roommates to fork up cash for utilities? It can be tough when everyone has different schedules. Splitwise is an app and website that makes paying and splitting bills among roommates super simple. Instead of nagging your roommates to pay bills, use this app that schedules reminders and keeps a record of who has and hasn’t paid up.
Chore Sharing: Never hear “It’s not my turn to take out the trash!” or “Didn’t I clean the bathroom last week?” again. There are a wide selection of apps that allow you to select and split household chores. It’s much easier to dole out responsibilities equally than it is to be passive-aggressive.

Use Life Hacks: There are all kinds of easy ways to save time, money and frustration using creative ideas from websites like Lifehacker and Buzzfeed. These little secrets will come in handy when you least expect it.
