Day 7 - Use it up, Wear it Out, Make it Do or Do Without
Wear it out,
Make it do,
Or do without."
Often used in reference to "Yankee frugality" the origins of the phrase are unclear. It was popularized in the United States during the rationing years of World War II. Whatever the original source of the saying today it could serve just as well as a slogan for seeking to live a sustainable life in our consumption focused culture and economy.
This week I'll be writing a four part series focusing on each line of the saying and answer the question of how we can make this old adage apply to our lives today.
Have you heard this saying before? Do you apply it to your life today?
