Hi everyone,
I am currently in my first year of uni and I have a problem with my roommates. The problem is that my roommates want me and another guy to contribute some money into buying foods and other things, the problem is that I have already budgeted the amount of money I need for food as well as other items and I don’t really like putting money towards a group of people who would spend the money on alcohol and other items for party’s. Also my roommates always have party inside our accommodation or attend to other party’s or night clubs every Saturdays.
My question is should I contribute some money into the group for foods and other items, which could effect my budget?

And if not how should I approach my roommates without being a *******?

If you don’t want to don’t do it. Simply state what you aid here about budgeting. If they don’t like it that’s not your problem.

Hi there. I think you should tell your flatmates straight up that you don't want to involve in it. It's okay to say no, just explain your situation to them as you have a budget and would prefer to buy items for yourself etc (assuming money is tight). Are you close with your flatmates that has sparkled this discussion or did they just ask out of the blue? Depending on that, just be honest with them. You don't have to contribute if you don't feel like it, and if they force you it's financial abuse which you can deal with further. Just go about it in a friendly and understanding matter.
