Welll... no.  Doubling the cheese would turn my Roman noodles into Roman 
glob, make my white pies fall to pieces, and possibly turn a cheese 
souffle into a small, windowless building. 

And, when shopping for a feast, there might not be a heck of lot of room 
to move in the budget, so you really need to know accurately enough not 
to waste money on overpurchasing.
