13 Must-Haves For People Who Live Alone

Living alone certainly has its benefits. There's no one around to mess up your clean space — or clean up your messy space. You get sole control of the remote. You can sleep in the middle of the bed with all four limbs outstretched — a feeling that the English language still doesn't have a word to describe. Flying solo also means you have to prepare accordingly, though, and these 13 must-haves for people who live alone do just that.

Don't mistake being alone for being lonely, because the two are not the same. You haven't lived until you've lived alone. Imagine being able to cook breakfast at 10 a.m. after a lovely 15 minutes of picking your nose, and there's no one there to judge you. Sound too good to be true? It isn't. I know from experience.

However, it does have its drawbacks. What happens when you can't open that jar of pickles you wanted to eat for dinner? What are you going to do about that spider in the bathroom, since you're scared to go near it and moving isn't really an option at this point?

That's where these 13 items come in. Live alone, comfortably, in peace.
