Track your stuff
How's this for a cool idea:
Tracks things like bills, casual debts, and stuff loans amongst housemates. Of course, being an american site it refers to them as room mates, but the point's still the same ;).

Has cool features like 'library', which includes a 'search for stuff on amazon' (I've just keyed in 'george r r martin, and selected the list I've got for example).

I'm quite impressed :)

Created an account usin' my current gmail address. Have created a group for the house. I'll play with it a little more, to see how it goes. Not convinced I want to be entering in other people's emails, if they've not signed up yet though.

I'm pretty layed back about money in general, but it does make a certain amount of sense if one person is 'taking care' of all the bills or whatever.

Not to mention tracking down a book that I want to read :).

*shrug* neato idea points, workability varies somewhat.

The idea of updating via SMS is also pretty good I thought, although admittedly doesn't work in the UK.

I use the simple method of small branding irons and a blow torch to track casual debt. I find it effective in discouraging people asking in the first place.

Sometimes the internet can needlessly complicate matter.

And you've never had a need in a shared household to split e.g. the council tax bill?

Not for the last seven and a half years so I'm guessing it wasn't available then.

I'd rather live under a mountain and mutter about "The Precious" than have a lodger.

I hope one can create a "shit you fucking broke you fucking oaf" section...
