“Many a mickle makes a muckle” means that many small quantities of something will make up a larger quantity.
The phrase is actually a misquote of the Scottish proverb “many a pickle makes a mickle.” “Mickle” and “muckle” both refer to a large amount or quantity, but we treat them as opposites in this phrase.
