Yes, we use it up, wear it out, make it last and make do. Making do intrigues me right now. It is the last part of this adage that I think lends itself to the most creativity. Making do has taken on more meaning for us since our hardware store burnt down. It is not so easy to run downtown to pick up the doohicky to fiddle with the thingamabob.
So we make do with what we have around here. When raspberries were in season I realized that carrying berries I needed a berry bucket. Hence one yogurt container with holes punched in the side. I strung old laundry line rope through the holes and made sure to keep the cover on the container so when I slid on my bum down the gully the berries stayed in the bucket.
Making do, fixing, repairing, repurposing. This will be the first in a series of posts exploring how we make do on the homestead. ( maybe now I can get some picks up with my posts.)
Do you have any little make-do projects that you are proud of?
