How to use "Close-fistedness" in context?

Close-handedness is a personality trait characterized by a propensity to be excessively purse- or wallet-conscious. Close-handedness typically manifests as a hypersensitivity to money and material possessions, often to the point of nervousness and an inability to let go of things. People who are close-handed often feel the need to hoard money, despite the fact that more money does not always lead to happiness. Close-handedness can also lead to problems in relationships because it can create a sense of competition and resentment.
