take on the responsibility. Ask if you can alternate
weekly. If they have an allergy, consider getting a
HEPA vacuum and air filter. It will reduce the dust
substantially and perhaps eliminating the chore
Do Your Laundry Once A Week
Create a laundry fund that the both of you can
access and accumulate your spare change in.
That way, when it comes to laundry day, you will
both have plenty of toonies, loonies, and quarters
for whatever combination of coins the machine
takes to take with you to the laundromat.
Do Your Dishes Immediately After Eating
A lot of people struggle with this method, thinking
as they put their dirty dishes in the sink, that they
will do them at a later time. But by the end of a few
days, all the dishes will have been used and you
may not have any paper plates to compensate. If
you live alone, try doing the dishes after you eat
for thirty days. That way, it will become a habit,
instead of a chore. If you live with a room mate,
ask them to dry while you wash the dishes, and
vice versa. Do your prep-dishes, pots, and pans
before you eat, while the food is still loose and
wet. Also try to use only one fork, knife, spoon,
plate and cup. Don’t forget to put the dishes away
once they are done!
Clean The Fridge Out Weekly
This will help reduce waste and make it easier for
you to do your shopping. Also, making meals will
be a snap. Use any items that are about to expire.
There are even sites online that allow you to input
your ingredients, and suggest meals to cook.
Clean And De-clutter Surfaces Regularly
Nothing is more frustrating than going to prepare
a meal, and not having enough space to do your
prep work. Tables, counter tops, and preparation
areas should be free of all debris and sanitized.
Keep a tub of bleach wipes handy on the counter
for an easy and quick cleanup. Use coasters so
that your tables don’t get moisture rings on them.OTTAWA AIRPORT Free Deluxe Hot Breakfast Free Airport Shuttle Free Wired &Wireless Internet Free Parking & Free Local Calls 24 Hrs.

transportation and stores. If it sounds too good
to be true, then it probably isn’t. Scammers spin
stories like they are about to leave for Europe or
another destination, and need someone to take
care of their home. One room or basement living
is most commonly described. They will tell you
that once they receive your funds, they will send
you the keys to the rental by mail.
Remember, if it doesn’t feel legitimate, don’t do it.
Move on to the next rental on your list. Never give
your personal, credit card, or banking information

KEEPING YOUR LIVING SPACE TIDY
College and University can be a big challenge. An
even bigger challenge can be keeping your living
space tidy and well organized. Between classes,
studying, and the occasional party, you barely
have time to clean! Keeping your space tidy helps
you to complete schoolwork, relax, and feel much
more at ease. If you have a room mate, then it will
keep the tension to a minimum. Finding clothes
all over the floor and week long take out leftovers
in the fridge can create a negative situation that
neither party wants to be in.
If you do have a room mate, share all the chores
between the both of you. If one of you does not
like to dust, then the other should be the one to
