thinking of writing a 'how to adult' book to explain all the day-to-day shit that's never taught:

- who cleans the toilet cleaner (spoiler: you)
- what the fuck do you do with an old mattress
- bugs: when are they a problem and when are they chill?
- lifehack: a co-working space with a better movie selection than netflix, no membership fee, and professional researchers on location, all for FREE (a millennial re-discovers libraries)
- turning strangers into friends

any other ideas people have?

- wash your dang dishes as/just after you cook; your food is fine resting for three minutes
- where to get quality stuff for non-Target/Amazon prices (supply stores)
- buy these seven tools AND a toolbox/bucket
- opening a bank account—at a credit union
- you can change your oil and put on a spare, actually
- getting new copies of your IDs (though it'd have to be real general)

- if you have storage for all your stuff (even if it's shoeboxes), you're more likely to put it away
- buy some frames for all that stuff on your wall

and having *transparent* storage boxes, makes it a lot easier to see at a glance what's actually in the box, rather than having to label it.

Also, if you have paperwork, file it away properly, rather than having it lying around.
My dad used to put paperwork in various plastic bags, or spread over tables, and then get upset when someone eventually moved them because they were piling up and getting in the way. It would drive me potty...

Also, just what paperwork do you actually *need* to keep around and what can you get rid of. And should you shred stuff



unfortunately that likely depends on your local tax regulations, so perhaps it'd be better to learn how you can find out what you should keep, shred or just plain trash.
