: Has anybody heard of a saying; 'you get all your thanks in the one basket' If so what does it mean?

Only 2 Google hits. Someone is being "clever" with the saying "Don't put all your eggs in one basket".
I would assume that they mean that they are putting all their thankfulness together in one container, and I would assume that they mean it as a good thing, even though putting all your eggs in one basket is not a good thing to do as they could all be lost at once.
