One of my roommates moved out on July 1st and a new one moved in that same weekend(this was all coordinated well in advance). When roommates move out you would expect them to take all their stuff, but roommates fail to move all their stuff. Whether it’s done intentionally or not, it doesn’t bother me because most of the items were small items than a dresser or a bed per say.
On this go around I accumulated the following:
I don’t drink coffee so the coffee maker is no use to me, but I’ll keep it around as guests or other roommates(current and future) might make use of it. The outdoor chairs are an awesome addition as I don’t have any deck furniture. Furthermore these chairs are portable making it great for picnics of tailgaiting. The drying rack is useful for hang drying large coats and sweaters. Last, but not least, the T.V. It’s an old flat screen TV(no HDMI inputs). I don’t watch any TV and currently don’t have a Netflix or Hulu subscription. This T.V. is basically serving as decoration for what would be a lonely T.V. stand.
The roommate that moved left some Omaha steaks. Guess what the other roommates and I split for dinner?
Grilled Steak of course!!
I also want to note that we take turns buying consumable such as toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags. I never had a roommate demand to take their share of the consumables that they purchased into. Believe me, I’ve had some very frugal roommates.
What are some items that your roommate left behind?
