The Week contest: Hamptons help

This week's question: Residents of New York's tony Hamptons are complaining that a post-pandemic labor shortage has forced them to do their own nails, laundry, and gardening. One Hamptonite expressed shock he had to "buy a lawn mower and cut my own lawn." If an author wrote a book of coping tips for the suddenly self-sufficient, what should it be titled?
