I was all by myself, no one there to support me mentally or financially. I though in order to survive I had to start buying cheap things, spend less and sell the unnecessary things. And I said to myself: "I have to make the best of whatever I have."

I don't know if the sentence is correct given the context. But if it is, how about "I have to make the best out of whatever I have"?

    The additional preposition out is syntactically valid, but idiomatically it's not common in your exact context. Jan 2 '21 at 13:15

    Does this answer your question? What to use: 'of' or 'out of'? See also Using “of” or “out of” big confusion Jan 2 '21 at 13:15
  • Do all these sentences sound good? 1. Make the best of your time. 2. Make the best of everything you have. 3.Make the best of this opportunity.
