In World War II a poster was distributed that said the following:
USE IT UP – WEAR IT OUT – MAKE IT DO!
This is an adage that is near and dear to every frugal heart.
I have created a free printable PDF to help remind you.

Thanks for sharing at Waste Not Want Not Wednesday!
You’re so good about commenting! I think you’re the first person ever to comment on all three posts. And I do a lot of linkies.
I love this! It reminds me of my grandmother’s old sock darning tool, she used to darn my grandfather’s socks. Sometimes I wish I had asked for that when they were clearing her house out 😉 Thanks for sharing this on Waste Not Want Not Wednesday, I’m sharing it!
I tried to mend socks, but they just aren’t the same.
This is something my grandpa would have said (WWII vet) – love it! Thanks for sharing with the Frugal Family.
It’s still true!
