40 Ways to Use It Up, Wear It Out, Make It Do, Or Do Without: Guest Post

So, I apologize for the lapse between when this was published and my post about it. August (well, the whole summer, actually) has been a little crazy!  Here’s hoping things settle down a bit this fall.

Nonetheless, I wanted to let you guys know that my newest contribution to My Joy-Filled Life is live!

I was inspired to write it based on the Depression-era wisdom of “Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.”  It’s one of my favorite frugal living-related quotes, and it’s one I really like to remember to keep my head when I start thinking about all the “things” I want.  I think it helps keep things in perspective and helps me remember what’s really important.
