Here is one that somehow seems appropriate on Easter.  It dates from WWI, about 1918.  It reminded people of the soldiers fighting the war in the trenches overseas.  The more food that people at home were able to save and not waste, the more was available to ship overseas to feed the troops.

I love the formality of the language used, "Waste Nothing - that he and his family may have enough".

Hope you are having a great Easter weekend.

'Waste nothing' is such a wise idea that seems so lost today. I've had students try to throw away perfectly good binders, pencils, and backpacks at the end of the year because they were tired of them and knew their parents would buy them new ones. So sad and shameful.

Wow, that's disturbing but sadly, oh so true nowadays huh? I have a coworker that has a neighbor who buys their kids new clothes every few months and just THROWS AWAY the old ones. No donation or anything. She asked him why they didn't donate and he said he didn't want anyone else wearing their clothes. How sad is that?
