You made me laugh; sometimes I feel exactly the same way. Lately, I've had a few opportunities to spend some money, but failed to do so. I couldn't think of one thing I felt that I needed. Sure, there were some wants, but none of them big enough to make me open my wallet; and I even decided to let a few of my needs go. They didn't seem big enough to be bothered by. I guess I'll just wait for a nicer bargain to fulfill those...

"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.

I love that quote and have it in a frame over my desk with another quote that I also love.

"I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do." by Edward Everette Hale.

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.

Thank you for your help! My sister-in-law and I are starting a newsletter for our family about cutting costs and being frugal and I thought that this saying would be good for our first issue.

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.
