What things should I learn how to fix?

I'd like to be a handy person.
Recently, I've had car troubles and I've been trying to learn more about cars so that I can make simple repairs myself in the future instead of paying for them.
What other things should I learn how to fix? I'd like suggestions of things that are simple to learn and useful to know. These could be things around the house, in the car, at the office, etc.
I have a bit of time and I'm really interested in learning how to do a variety of things so even random, weird suggestions are welcome.
Links to instructions would be helpful as well.
Also, if you have stories of how you found knowing how to repair certain things to be useful in your life, I'd appreciate those too.
