In our fast-paced technologically-centered modern world, many adults have never learned some of the basic skills need for self-sufficiency or survival. We’ve complied a list of some of the crucial skills everyone should know, for day-to-day life, homesteading, or SHTF.

  1. How to change a tire: seems basic, but many people, especially women, don’t know how to do this. But in many scenarios in life, and definitely when SHTF, AAA might not be reachable.
  2. How to hand-wash laundry: it’s harder than it looks!
  3. How to start a fire: probably the #1 survival skill, everyone should know how to do this

  5. How to cook beans: also basic-but important!
