Saṃyatopaskara (संयतोपस्कर) refers to a “cleverly managed household”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.54 (“Description of the duties of the chaste wife”).—Accordingly, as a Brahmin lady said to Pārvatī: “[...] She shall partake of the leavings of her husband’s food or whatever is given by him saying ‘This is thy great grace’. She shall never take food without first offering due share to the gods, the Pitṛs, the guests, the servants, cows and saintly mendicants. A gentle lady of chaste rites shall always be clever to manage the household (saṃyatopaskara) with limited requisites. She shall be averse to spend unnecessarily. [...]”.
