Meaning: 

Sometimes cutting corners to be frugal can actually be detrimental and can end up being the expensive option in the long run.  Some efforts to save could turn out to be false economy.

This proverb is the reverse of “Count the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves” which advocates being frugal and economizing to reap later rewards.
