general

Note that all cast iron care is in the cooking badge.

You might think that everything in this list is simple and obvious.   But experience has taught us that there are a lot of people that have never done most of this stuff.   So if you have done this before, all you need to do is take some pictures - no big deal.

Could we add to the jeves list - set up one of those clothes racks that you hoist up to the ceiling and then lower to add/remove clothes?  (it might be already there but called something else?)

The smallest formatting comment:

The Alice list could use an extra carriage return in the line prior, and maybe even the Bold treatment for the title that Jeeves gets.

(Feel free to delete this comment when done, or if it's unneeded.)

So I've been catching up through the pods and want to start knocking out PEP badges but I'm confused about where to start? Like, is starting here with a Nest badge as good a way to go as any or should I have some more background?

Thank you for your time! Excited......

You can start with whatever badge you want! I liked starting with skills I wanted to learn (woodworking), but then moved to doing a badge I knew I could relatively easily complete, that way I'd feel success and have a shiny badge. For me, that was the Community badge. For you, it might be the Nest badge! The Nest badge is great because it also is great motivation to clean!

Sounds awesome! Thank you Nichole!

I think the Nest Badge will be fun & easy (my partner and I can be competitive about cleaning for once 😂), it'll be interesting to start the others since we live in a townhouse but it'll be fun!
