Q: I'm teaching a class at my community college next spring on self-sufficiency in a modern age. I'm curious to know what self-sufficient skills your readers either find essential, wished they had learned growing up, or are hoping to learn now as adults. I'm thinking things like cooking, sewing, or gardening, or perhaps preserving food? Maybe even basic household repairs? So my question is: what basic self-sufficient skills would you recommend learning? What's in your life toolbox?
