Essential life skills for surviving in the real world
So, you’ve left home, you’re finally living on your own, A’Levels or degree in hand, perhaps even a job under your belt, you know exactly how trigonometry works and how to present in PowerPoint, and then someone asks you to switch on the washing machine…
Bare Necessities is the essential survival guide for home-leavers of all ages, filling you in on everything your education left out. Light-hearted and anecdotal, it guides readers through absolutely everything from writing a cheque to filing a tax return, and from boiling an egg to contacting the gas company when the egg fails to boil.
Chapters include: food, health, housekeeping, car survival, banking, starting work, and property.
