We Are Saving Money by Living Together

My brother and I both work long hours, and we don’t spend a lot of time at home because of it. We were both renting apartments and realized that we were wasting a lot of money by having our own apartments rather than sharing the cost and just having one apartment between the two of us. Neither of us are really home other than to eat and sleep, so we started looking at apartments in Draper to see if it would be better for the two of us to go in together on an apartment.

As soon as I saw the apartments at Beacon Hill, I knew that they were the right ones for us. The rooms are nice and large, and the one that I was looking at has two bedrooms and each one has a full bath. The rent is just a bit more than what I was paying for a single room apartment, but we are halving the cost of not only the apartment but also the utilities. The really neat thing about getting this apartment together is that we are going to end up having even more at a lower cost for each of us because of the apartment and community amenities.

There is a nice pool, a fitness center, and enough parking for everyone if we have friends over. When I showed the information about the apartment to my brother and showed him how much we would each save every month, he agreed with me that it would be in our best interest to go in on this together. We were able to apply for the apartment online, and it did not take long before they told us that we were able to move in. It is nice having more room and having a bit more money in my bank account every month since we did this.
