This proverb doesn't actually make much sense when you consider it for a moment. A penny already earned cannot, of course, be earned again by not spending it.

Quibbles aside, this statement means that he who manages to hold on to the money he has rather than spending wastefully (even a penny) will later be able to make use of that money in more important expenditures.
