not have a penny

(redirected from doesn't have a penny)

not have a penny

To be extremely poor; to have very little or no money to spend. During college, when I didn't have a penny, I survived off of ramen noodles for months at a time. They used to be so well off, but the economy crashed and their business closed, and they don't have a penny anymore.
