“The person who doesn’t know where his next dollar is coming from…”

"The person who doesn’t know where his next dollar is coming from usually doesn’t know where his last one went” is a financial saying that has been printed on many images. “It is almost invariably the case that the person who doesn’t know where his next dollar is coming from also doesn’t know where his last one went” was printed in “Paragraphically Speaking” by Olin Miller, in the Paducah (KY) Sun-Democrat on April 20, 1954.

Olin Miller (1894-1981) wrote for a newspaper in Thomaston, Georgia. His syndicated daily feature entitled “Dixie Dewdrops” appeared in many other newspapers, and his lines were frequently quoted by others.
