husbandn. 丈夫 v. 节约地使用(或管理)
The word husband comes from the Old Norse hūsbōndi, where hūs meant house and bōndi meant dweller.
husband 由古挪威语hūsbōndi演变而来, hūs是house的意思，bōndi是dweller(居住者)。
As a verb, husband means to conserve resources and use them frugally.
Because of the flooding in the area, roads are cut off and everyone is being asked to husband their supplies.
This conservation of resources sense of husband also occurs in the related noun husbandry.
Long before husbands were hen-pecked guys who cut the grass on weekends and played with the kiddies after school, they were robust men of the Earth — farmers, in other words.
Today, you most often hear of “crop husbandry”, which refers to raising crops; however, if you practice toad husbandry — you must be raising toads.
