This is a book about the basic life skills that are not always taught in school or at home. It contains those basic life skills that are utilized by adults of all ages for everyday living. The life skills included, but not limited to, are Cleaning; Cooking Basics; Laundry; Food Spoilage; Home/Car buying tips; General Repairs; Health and Nutrition; Relationships; Finance; First year baby basics; and much more! Did you ever wonder when you were getting ready to leave home for the first time, if your parents had taught you everything you needed to know to survive on your own? Or, are you now single after a long term relationship and don't know where to start? Do you know how to do laundry; clean a home; balance a checkbook or cook a meal? Are you aware of the different types of deposits required to either rent or buy a home? If the answers were “yes” – good for the role models that you had! Thank them every chance you get! If the answers were “no” to most of these questions – don’t be discouraged – there is help on the way! Have you ever noticed how great you feel when you have cleaned your home or organized a room? By taking charge of your home and yourself, this will allow you to take charge of other areas of your life such as school, work, and other outside activities. What we do today, will in turn benefit us tomorrow.
