New philosophy:

I have seen a quote making the rounds in various places lately and I have tried my best to embrace it:

Use it up
Wear it out
Make it do
Or do without

Such great advice! I tend to think that most problems can be solved by purchasing something, but lately I’ve been trying to think of more creative solutions.

I’ve been cutting the bad bits out of vegetables instead of tossing them entirely. I glued the lining of my shoes back down so I can still get some wear out of them. Instead of buying new food storage containers, I’ve been saving salsa jars and other packaging.

Do without is the hardest thing for me to apply. Fortunately, because I’m in the middle of moving, it’s a little easier to resist silly purchases. I just picture packing it up and moving it across town.
