Roomate moved out! SHOOT!

November 26th, 2017 at 03:47 pm

MO had a young man living in his basement in an extra bedroom when we started dating, then when we got married and moved to our new house, he had moved with us since we have 4 bedrooms and lots of extra room. He paid $400 a month and that extra money went right into savings and was a big help to us. Sadly he has decided to move to CA to live with his GF.....so after 3 1/2 years of the extra money, that is over.

It's a big hit to the finances. We were putting $1300 a month from rent for all of our rentals into savings, so we will have to lower that to $900 and try to continue to work on limited spending (which was going really well till Thanksgiving/Black Friday Shopping went nuts).

On the plus side now we have the 2nd bathroom back and will have another extra bedroom to use for guests or whatever we would like to use it for.

    Sounds unexpected? But isn't the privacy a big plus?

    It was unexpected, he told us on Wednesday and moved out on Thursday....lol. Not much notice! But he didn't have a lease or anything so that was fine. We didn't really have a privacy issue as he had his own bedroom, bathroom, fridge, microwave, separate entrance, etc. The only thing we would share is laundry area and oven/stove, but he never cooked and would usually do laundry when we weren't home. Honestly if his car wasn't in the driveway we would have never known he was here! My office is right outside his bedroom door though, so it is nice to not worry if I am making too much noise or something in the AM and waking him up.
