Stingy Extravagance and Wasteful Scrimping

"It is a great mistake to suppose that economy consists in buying the poorest articles and in making the table unattractive. The great art is to know where to save and when to spend, and how to use everything to the best possible advantage. There is such a thin as stingy extravagance and wasteful scrimping."
Susan Anna Brown, Mrs. Gilpin's Frugalities, 1883
