    What is "make do with"?

    In its most basic definition, make do with is to use whatever is available to complete a task. It is often used to describe how people in difficult circumstances have managed to survive by finding ways to do things without the help of specific items or features. For example, one might say that the person is making do with a broken chair to sit in, or that the business is making do with a small staff when its main competitor has many more.

    The phrase can also be used metaphorically to describe how people manage to cope with difficult situations.
