Who needs a roommate eating all of your food?

I gotta say until I married my husband, I found it hard to live with other people. I had roommates in college that were... OK and I had one roommate that I'm actually still friends with today. But after a few bad experiences, I just lived by myself.

And loved it.

Of course I love having someone in the house with me these days. And I truly believe I married my best friend. However, I still miss the independence that came with living solo.

Now, if you have a good roommate, you know it's nice to have someone else contribute to the rent. Not every roommate is good for your mental health, but you deal with it because you need financial help. Let's face it, that monthly payment can get a little pricey if you're on your own.

Unless you live in Boise.
