Sprigs: Misery and misers are cousins.

Last year I was cheap.

I bought a pair of hedge trimmers that could only trim back one dead flower stalk at a time. They were too lightweight for heavy duty work.   

I remedied that this year, and bought the sturdiest pair that I could still lift,  open,  and close. Now I can whack off multiple sedum stalks. Next, I'll try them on the scraggly bushes. 

Poor Richard may have counseled that a penny saved is a penny earned. 
Poor Pam admonishes: Misers and misery are cousins.
