Gather up all her stuff and dump it in her room. Maybe she'll get the picture.

thats what i would do! just dump everything on the center of her bed with a note saying "keep your pigsty to yourself" lol, thats liable to at least cause a bit of tension and at worse a full out blowup..but then if she is THAT much of a pig, do you really want her there?

It may not be easy, but you may have to talk to her about it. Let her know it makes it difficult to be comfortable in your home when she is leaving her stuff everywhere, and be kind about it, so you don't start a fight. Good luck!

Hi there. You just simply tell her to shape up or ship out... Tell these are the house rules, if you cant live by these simple rules of hygiene, that she will have to find somewhere else to live... Its as easy as that, otherwise this is always going to upset you and the house... You must speak up for your own peace of mind, tell the other house mates to support you in your decision as well...

The only thing is we have different leases. We live in a apartment with four bedrooms and everyone has their own. We share the living areas but i cant kick her out. She has her own lease and her own rent. So im screwed basically. It college living at its finest. lol

That doesnt sound like a good situation at all. Hopefully both of us will figure out a way to get this to stop.
