Erin Bried realized years ago that she didn't know how to do anything. She was a self-sufficient modern woman but couldn't sew a button. Why weren't the skills of our grandmothers and grandfathers being passed down? She went on a search to learn all of life's little lessons and household skills that everyone should know but doesn't. Three books later, she has become the go-to gal for all the practical tips in life you need to know to get by, like how to fold a fitted sheet or how to hang a picture perfectly or how to tie a tie.
