GETTING (_plural_ GETTINGS)
* The act of obtaining or acquiring; acquisition.
* Bible, Proverbs iv. 7
With all thy GETTING, get understanding.
* That which is got or obtained; gain; profit.
* J. H. Riddell, _Old Mrs Jones_
She was always considering how to increase her "GETTINGS," but she never gave a thought as to how she might save them.
