Or, you could tie any two neutrals together and use a #10 pigtail for 15 A circuits, and #8 for 20 A circuits. For the love of God, if you do go this route, heed the warnings above!
Forgot to post that part. Thanks. This makes it a mini-MWBC(sort of). HouseHelper's advice is better(Just make sure the tie bar/strap is reinstalled).
