How to Sew a Button: And Other Nifty Things Your Grandmother Knew is a cute little book--I love the cover. While this one isn't catered to college students specifically, it has a LOT of cool advice that I think is really relevant for people of my generation. Some of the advice and how-to's are things you probably would never do...like can your own vegetables. But some of the advice is sensible and practical and something you might find you are happy you learned (like how to fold a fitted sheet or bake a pie). There's also a lot of good stuff for those living on their own for the first time (how to clean without harsh chemicals, how to make a budget, how to hand wash delicates).
I consider myself a bit of a crafty person (I know how to sew, enjoy baking, and LOVE writing letters and thank-you notes), but this book is a pretty cool little package that has some advice written in a fun voice that I eagerly devoured at quiet intervals in the store. I can't wait to peruse it some more!
And of course, there's How to Build a Fire: And Other Handy Things Your Grandfather Knew!
