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.
______ 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).
