[caption id="attachment_27" align="alignnone" width="300"] Living with a roommate can be a great experience, but sometimes troubles arise when it's time to pay the bills. Luckily, there are apps that help make your living situation a little easier. Check out the following apps that will help you and your roommate stay on track for groceries, rent, debt owed, and more: Splitwise Splitwise helps to ensure everyone gets paid back and is completely free to use on your computer, iPhone, or Android. It tallies up all your IOUs so you can reimburse in one big payment. This is great when you're having to pay for rent that isn't all inclusive. You can also set up reminders to help you keep up with payments by uploading expenses and sharing with your roomies. Venmo Venmo is probably the most popular among the money-sending app variety. You can easily add a bank account or debit card and transfer money between roommates at no extra charge. You can also keep money in your Venmo account to use towards your bills. Venmo is totally free and easy as long as both parties involved have the app. It's also a great way to send birthday money or split dinner! IOU IOU is your personal debt manager! You can upload expenses, share them among your housemates and even send each other email reminders about payments. You can add recurring IOUs for monthly bills and create payment plans for bigger purchases. It's really easy to keep track of everything with a record of your debt history. Avoid confusion and fights about who paid who back, when you can refer back to the app. Splitrr Splitrr is extremely easy and convenient to use because there is no login required, it works completely offline and supports all currencies. It will help tell you who is next to pay and who owes whom money. You can generate a PDF to email to your roomies to keep up to date. This app also works wonders for planning weekend trips and vacations! OurGroceries So what if you and your roomies share groceries? There's an app for that! With OurGroceries you can easily make and change grocery lists, crossing off items as you purchase them. That way you don't end up with double duty on shareable items like eggs, milk, and (of course) wine. Union Flats
