Are you thinking about bringing a roommate into your home or apartment? Whether this will be a new experience or simply a new roommate, there are things you should do to get ready for them. A lot of that involves clearing out clutter. It’s a good time to take stock of all your stuff and decide what you can get rid of. Here’s what you need to clear out for your roommate:
Your last roommate might have left a few things behind in their bedroom. Although you can offer them to your new roommate, chances are they would much rather have an empty space. That means you need to get rid of all the leftover furniture and other rubbish. If you’ve used this room as your own storage area, then it’s time to get rid of all the stuff you’re holding onto. Probably a safe bet that most of what you have in storage you could probably live without.
In addition to clearing out the bedroom, you also have to clear out the closet. Everyone wants a clean closet when they move in. There could be a communal closet in the hallway that you might want to offer your new roommate. That would mean clearing out at least half of the stuff you have in there now. That would seem fair since they’ll be paying half the rent.
Having a roommate means sharing common spaces like living room, bathroom and kitchen. Depending on their situation, your new roommate could either come with enough stuff to fully stock the kitchen or just a few mugs. You can make them feel welcome by clearing out a specific cabinet for their stuff. It may be smarter to have separate cabinets just to keep things apart.
If you’re living space has an exterior storage unit or garage, then you might need to do some clearing out there as well. Your roommate will certainly have stuff they’ll want to put in storage.
