I've done so much for so long with so little, that now I can do anything with nothing.

Does anyone remember all the words to the saying: use it up, make do, do without... I can't remember all the words and I would like to use the saying in my newsletter.

Use it up; wear it out; make it do or do without!
Make do best you can with what you got!
Think of it as a game - every time you save you earn invisible points, which you can then spend on something else!
I could well be wrong but I think it is:
Use it up,
Wear it out,
Make it do,
Or go without.
"Do what you can, where you are, with what you have." Originally said by Theodore Roosevelt. I think it may also have been McGyver's motto. It always makes me stop and think about what I want to do and if I can accomplish it without having to buy anything for the project.
