Living with a roommate means you always have someone to hang out with, whether you’re just spending the night at your apartment or exploring the city. Here are five fun and low-cost activities that you and your roommate can do together — or with other friends!
Host a Game Night
Have an at-home game night with your roommate or invite a few friends over to join. You can order some pizza and settle in for a casual night of competitive fun. Consider upping the ante with some sort of prize for the winner.
Cook a Homemade Dinner
Instead of going out, save some money by staying in and cooking your own dinner. There are plenty of simple recipes you can make together, from breakfast for dinner to Mexican night complete with tacos and margaritas.
Bake Some Sweet Treats
Whip up some sweet treats together and spend the afternoon decorating them with icing and sprinkles. You could bake a cake, a batch of cookies, or even some cupcakes. If you end up having extras, consider sharing with your neighbors or friends. They’re sure to appreciate the thoughtful gesture.
Head to the Gym
A roommate is the perfect workout buddy because you can hold each other accountable and fit in workout sessions together. Head to the gym to lift some weights or go for a walk or run outside. You might even find that working out is more enjoyable when you have some company.
Binge Watch a TV Series
Not sure what to do during a rainy weekend? You and your roommate can curl up on the couch and watch an entire series from start to finish. Browse through your streaming services and pick a show you’ll both enjoy. You could also have a movie marathon if TV shows aren’t your style. Don’t forget the popcorn!
