Use it up, wear it out,
Make it do, or do without.
  - WW2-era slogan regarding rationing of consumer goods so as to leave enough raw material available for use in the war effort.

We're gonna use it up,
We're gonna wear it out,
Ain't nothin' left in this whole world I care about.
  - 80s-era disco anthem...

Had to go with "Use it up, wear it out", on audacity alone.  To borrow a line from the opposite end of the 80s musical spectrum, "better to burn out, than fade away."
