Definition
providing carefully for the future — often by saving money
  • I have five hundred crowns, The thrifty hire I sav'd under your father, Which I did store to be my foster-nurse, When service should in my old limbs lie lame, And unregarded age in corners thrown; Take that: and He that doth the ravens feed, Yea, providently caters for the sparrow, Be comfort to my age!
    2.3 — Act 2 Scene 3 — Before OLIVER'S House (58% in)
