A List of Things All Women Should Master

Monday, July 6, 2020

As women, we have a lot of stuff we handle on an everyday basis but there are still some things that even I find myself rolling my eyes over because it's something I have to ask my husband to help with.  So today, I have a list of things that every woman should master so she can truly be an independent chick!

Change A Spare Tire

Even if you can call someone in the event of an emergency like this, it's crucial to still have the capability to save yourself if you're stuck in the middle of nowhere with no cell service and a flat tire.  Here's a great video to teach you.

Jump Start A Car
Not only do I think every woman should have a pair of jumper cables in their trunk, but it's super helpful to understand how to jump start your car.  This video is a great tutorial. 

How to Shut Off the Water
If there's ever a pipe burst or another issue in your bathroom, it's important to know where the shut off valve is.  It should be labeled for future reference if it isn't already. 

Self Defense Basics
Sign up for a one day self defense work shop and your life will never be the same again.  It will instill within you a confidence that you can fight back if attacked.     

Resetting A Breaker
Make sure you know where the breaker box in your home is and hopefully it's labeled.  If the power goes out and you need to reset the breaker, you will be able to! 

Use Basic Tools
A drill is every woman's dream, trust me.  Make sure you own one, know how to use it, and have a mini emergency kit of other basic tools set aside.  My kit has a drill, hammer, screwdrivers, wrenches, and nails.  

Check and Fill Tires
You can get a portable gauge and make it a point to check your tire air pressure every month and then head to a gas station to fill it with air.  The recommended tire pressure should be listed on the inside of your driver's side door. 

Fix a Clog
You can get a drain snake and keep it on hand for when you're having back up issues in the bathroom.  Make sure you always have a plunger on hand as well. 

Mow the Lawn
Learn how to start the mower, fill it with gas, and actually mow your lawn safely.  This can save you money in the long run rather than hiring someone to do it for you.  Just make sure you get it serviced every season! 

Fold a Fitted Sheet
When you figure out this one, please let me know!

What skills have you mastered that you're proud of?
