Sharing Expenses and Benefits

Share Expenses

One of the easiest ways to save money is to share a living space. You can split all the costs, or charge a set rate every month. But, this financial tip isn’t just about money. There are other benefits to sharing living expenses.
If you are in poor health or simply can’t do all the things that need to be done around your house, it can help to have someone else there with you. In fact, the comfort of having someone around can boost your general health. Run an ad for a live-in handyman, maid, or someone with medical experience.
You can share costs in other ways too. Carpool for appointments and shopping or other things you need to get done. Start a community garden so you can socialize and share what you have with each other. Get as creative as you want. You’ll find that by working with people you can trust and sharing expenses and benefits, you’ll enjoy a lot more than a fatter checking account.
