IF YOU HAVE TRIED TO GOOGLE “HOW TO SPLIT BILLS WITH ROOMMATES”, YOU’RE GONNA HAVE A BAD TIME.
Because it’s mostly terrible advice. Here’s a small sample:
“MAKE A COST SPREADSHEET”
It’s 2020 people.
How many people know how to write a formula in Excel. I spend most of my days programming and all I can recall is that they start with ‘=’.
Seriously, no one knows how to build a spreadsheet complicated enough to automate the process of splitting house bills.
“USE SPLITWISE OR ANOTHER BILL SPLITTING APP”
A little better.
BUT, have you tried reminding your housemates to settle the amount they owe you? It’s probably easier to teach me how to write without cap locks, and that’s NOT EASY.
It’s not your housemate’s fault though, there are 99 million things to do every day but paying you back $20 for the last internet bill ain’t one.
“CHOOSE YOUR ROOMMATES WISELY”
I won’t even waste my time on this one.
“HERE’S WHAT YOU REALLY SHOULD BE DOING”
Shameless plug incoming.
Seriously, I’ve lived in over 10 shared houses in my short time on earth. I decided to spend the last 3 years solving the most annoying problem that plagued all of them. Housemates having to owe each other money.
I co-founded YSplit with 2 of my closest and smartest friends and I’m happy to see how it has positively benefited hundreds of users so far.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
It’s simple really.
- You link your bills to YSplit, Internet, Gas, Electricity, Netflix, Rent, you name it.
- Invite your housemates.
- There is no 3.
That’s it! Every month when your bills are due, YSplit automatically bills everyone their share. So you can kiss goodbye to I.O.U’s.
That’s how you split HBO Now with your housemates.
