Get On The Same Page With Finances
If your significant other can’t last from January to February without blowing all of the rent money on sushi and T-shirts, it’s probably something you should know about before giving them access to your bank accounts. Filling out this monthly bill planner together is a great way to figure out where you both stand in terms of money as well as how successful you’ll be at making ends meet. It helps you track the money that’s going out in the form of bills as well as chart your expenses on a monthly basis, and its beautiful matte exterior and organized (but spacious) interior helps you stay positive about your living costs.
Share (And Gently Remind Each Other Of) Responsibilities
We had a chore chart in my college apartment, and I’m pretty sure it was the only thing that kept me from full-on mothering out. I will never again live with someone who’s sloppy or lazy, and this simple bulletin board provides a platform to ensure household tasks are shared equally between partners. It has 12 pushpins to secure gentle daily reminders, and because it’s entirely magnetic, you can also secure pics from your last vacation to keep the good vibes going strong. Having a place to keep track of shared responsibilities is an essential tool in any relationship.
