Twitter Web App : If you'd like to describe someone who doesn't like spending money in a more positive light, we could use 'economical', 'prudent' or 'frugal'. While not compliments or extremely positive, they do have more neutral to positive connotations.

Twitter Web App : Other synonyms for very large include:

๐‡๐ฎ๐ ๐ž
๐„๐ง๐จ๐ซ๐ฆ๐จ๐ฎ๐ฌ
๐‚๐จ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฌ๐ฌ๐š๐ฅ
