Well, folks, from a really off-the-cuff thought, to an article in the news, allow me to welcome you to this forum.

Ok, now, here is what I am thinking, "What do you consider basic living skills?"

And any tips, hints, and cheats that make life easier or tough times easier to deal with.

If you think it is important for a person to know how to do, post it up.

Thank You.

COOK. Even if all you have is a hotplate and a toaster oven -- or even a fire of twigs -- you can feed yourself and family much cheaper than buying fast food. Google "one pot meals" or soup recipes.

And yes, I've cooked over both. Except I no longer allow DH to roast potatoes buried the coals, "the way we did in Boy Scouts." Yep, charred clear through.

I definitely think we need a thread on how to effectively swear.
