New Times, New Sayings?

It occurred to me today that there are a few maxims that may need a bit of updating in light of inflation and the current economy:

A penny saved is a penny earned.

_____ are a dime a dozen.

Suggestions? I thought of:

A penny saved is worthless because it doesn't buy you anything anymore.

and

______ are 46 cents a dozen (adjusted for inflation and the general worth of money using a very vague estimate on the origination date of this saying).
