Brooklyn and its fellow boroughs (Staten Island excepted, of course) not only feature incredibly expensive housing, but they also have quite a few young people who are positively dying to stuff themselves into tiny apartments. So it is not unheard of for three or four (or more) unrelated people to live together in one place. While this contributes to one’s sense of community and builds character through forced intimacy, it also leads to the occasional tiff.
“Who’s turn is it to pay ConEd for power that so often sputters out (hi Queens and Midtown!)?”
“Did you pay your sixth of the DVR bill?”
“I paid for toilet paper last time!”
Ah, these dulcet cries need not pour from your cramped home any longer, thanks to Billshare. It’s a free app that allows you and your roommates to track the household expenses and everyone’s shares of them. It sends out little email reminders and has statistics. It’s anal-retentive and confrontational so you don’t have to be!
Seriously. How can you not love the internet?
