It can be done.

Thursday, February 21, 2013

"Use it up.

Wear it out.

Make it do...

or do without."

This piece of advice was given to me many years ago.
It works.
It's not easy.
But it can be done.

    My Mom was raised in the SHE had frugality thoroughly ingrained in her...and taught us the same. Sometimes I find it hard to let things go..thinking SOMEONE should be able to use this. Too bad more of the world is not more careful..we wouldn't be polluting the world with plastic and trash.

    LOL that seems to describe my life despite that I have never lived through a war. I just hate waste of any kind.

    From the Frugal Guru: "Over 70 years ago Americans were encouraged to be frugal to help the war effort.

"Use it Up, Wear it Out Make it Do or Do Without" was used as a rallying cry for frugality.

The motto is used once again by frugal people to help their families and country."

The wisdom of the saying still applies.

    Good advice in a society that throws away so much that is still usable!
