Definition of Skimping:
- "Oh, Money! Money!", Eleanor Hodgman Porter.
Pretty happy years- children coming on,- trouble visiting us with the rest; sorrow- happiness- skimping and saving; her a- raking and scraping to make a good appearance, and make things do; me trying one thing and another, to make our fortune and her always kind and encouraging, and hopeful; death standing between us and both of us sitting there by the kitchen stove trying to make up some kind of prayer to comfort the other.- "In the Heart of a Fool", William Allen White.
- "The Killer", Stewart Edward White.
