Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I've always wondered what they meant in Persuasion by retrenching? Obviously the Elliot's were living beyond their income, and had debts, and one option was to rent their house out and move someplace cheaper like Bath. But what would retrenching have involved? The movie seems to suggest it's just going on a budget, but I'm sure it must be more than that...
