Use it up, Wear It Out, Make It Do, or Do Without

 I grew up hearing these words from my grandparents who were adults during the first depression.
 I was reminded of them while I was busy designing today's quote.
 Webster's coat was ripped on one side and I patched it for him over the weekend. Now he will be wearing it for years to come. Aren't you impressed that I am following my own advice?

I LOVE THAT! That should be the tag line on a HGTV show - pitch it!

Great quote, great perspective, and great coat save!

Yes, it will last for many years yet! Too many folks throw out too much stuff!
