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

"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.

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 do, do without
Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.
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.
if you can do without it don't get it
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,
